Nominations open for the virtual volunteer awards 2020

Deadline 31st July 2020

Update from Smile Foundation:

We realise the event cannot be held in the same way it was last year with the current COVID19 pandemic we are all living through .

However, we also know how many amazing volunteers are still out there doing amazing things and have done for many years before this pandemic, and will continue for many years after. We want to recognise them and their efforts and outstanding achievements, across all types of volunteering in our community. The awards open to all volunteers who have been volunteering across the last 12 months.

We want to bring all the truly fantastic volunteering together under one roof (or via one live steam!) and then tell the world how great our region’s volunteers are!

The event will take place virtually via live stream, on 8th October at 4pm and will be able to watch and cheer on the nominees via Facebook and YouTube. There will be 10 awards plus a special Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award. 

We are delighted to be joined once again by Headline Event Partners, Nisa Local’s charity, Making a Difference Locally and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

You can enter online, via paper entry form or via a video submission. This is something new we have introduced for 2020 and we’d love to see you all talking so proudly about your volunteers, or about your own volunteering.

Nominations are now being accepted and we want to hear from you – who are the special volunteers deserving recognition? Full details:
