Volunteer Award – For volunteers over the age of 25 years old who have exceeded what would normally be expected of them and demonstrated their outstanding commitment to their role.

Individual Trustee Award – For those in Chairman, Treasurer or Secretary roles who have shown due diligence, good governance and commitment for the minimum of a year, providing outstanding support, guidance and inspiration to the organisation.

Volunteer Team Award – For two or more volunteers or trustees who have demonstrated great teamwork, provided support and encouragement for other volunteers, and made a significant and positive impact through working together

Nominate HERE.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 1st July 2022

The Mayor, Councillor Frank Kelly said, “Volunteers represent a crucial force for positive change in communities, helping to make our borough a better place to live and providing support to those who need it most. Recent years have highlighted just how essential volunteers are for so many of us, so it is important we give them the recognition they deserve.”

The annual award scheme, now in its nineteenth year, was set up to recognise the unrewarded heroes who do a great amount of valuable work for the borough and its community and to show appreciation for their selfless service. The scheme is organised by Reigate & Banstead Borough Council in partnership with Voluntary Action Reigate & Banstead.
