Our very own Roger Parr, Deputy Chief Executive/Chief Finance Officer at Blackburn with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) helped to launch the Blackburn with Darwen’s Community Volunteer Awards open for nominations.
The CCG is a local sponsor of the awards along with Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, Community CVS and a range of other local sponsors to launch the new awards, which aim to recognise the contributions community groups and individuals make to life in our borough.
For the first time, the Council’s Good Neighbour Awards will be presented alongside the annual Community CVS Awards and there are opportunities for residents, local businesses, charities, community groups and social enterprises to be nominated for awards.
In total, 21 awards will be up for grabs across 12 categories including Volunteer of the Year, an Environment Award, Grassroots Award and the Community Involvement Award, which is open to the local business community.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 5 April.
Nominations can be made online at www.communitycvs.org.uk/volunteer/volunteer-awards/.
You can also collect nomination forms from Community CVS at the Boulevard Centre, Railway Road, Blackburn – next to Blackburn train station – or contact Donna Talbot on (01254) 583957 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Community Volunteer Awards will be presented at a special celebration in King George’s Hall in June.
