How Volunteer Awards 2021

Howick Local Board is thrilled to celebrate its volunteers with a recognition ceremony in June.

The ceremony is held every two years with the awards based on community nominations to celebrate the work volunteers do, and the contribution they make.

Nominations are open from 11 May closing 1 June followed by the ceremony on June 27, at the Uxbridge Centre in Mellons Bay.

“The efforts of volunteers are at the heart of many successful activities that make our community a great place. To acknowledge these wonderful volunteers, we are inviting them to sit back and relax and join us for a light supper and entertainment”, says Howick Local Board chair Damian Light.

An invite-only event, community organisations are encouraged to nominate up to three of their finest volunteers whose contributions have not yet been recognised with the board, by providing their details and information in the nomination form found here.

Damian adds, “Our volunteers are the ones who find the time to help and generously give up their time to willingly serve our community and we need local heroes who have yet to have the opportunity to honoured by the board, their fellow volunteers, and the public. To ensure the event runs smoothly, all nominations are completed online”.
