Celebrating the donation of time
The Kent Volunteering Awards will celebrate all aspects of volunteering around the county. The awards are open to nominations until noon on Friday 18 October.
Individuals and teams of volunteers from Kent, Medway, Bexley and Bromley will have their hard work and dedication showcased at the annual event, which is supported by the KM Group.
The awards will champion employer-assisted volunteering schemes, community volunteering through clubs, youth groups and charities, volunteer carers and those donating their time through the health sector, as well as those supporting schools and the education sector.
The event is being staged by the KM Charity Team. Simon Dolby, the charity’s Founder, said: “Whether the volunteering is linked to gardening for the elderly, driving the disabled or meeting and greeting visitors at one of the county’s historic buildings, we welcome nominations to celebrate the fantastic contribution made.”
Nominations can be made by the general public, family members of volunteers, clubs and charities benefiting from the volunteering as well as business representatives linked to individuals or teams involved with employer-assisted volunteering.
The event is supported by a number of organisations including the Lord Lieutenant of Kent, Pfizer, Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, Stronger Kent Communities, EKC Group, Kent Community Foundation, Hempstead House and metroSTOR (part of StreetspaceGroup).
