Nominations are now open to acknowledge and celebrate volunteers’ contributions and hard work for the benefit of the Albert-Eden area.
Albert-Eden Local Board is inviting the community to submit the names of unsung heroes who have given their time and energy, so they can be celebrated at a ceremony on Wednesday 12 July, 7–8.30pm at Mt Albert Seniors Hall.
Albert-Eden Local Board Chair Margi Watson is pleased volunteers will get the acknowledgement they deserve. “We are grateful for all those volunteers who generously invest their efforts in our area. The Albert-Eden community would not be what it is without their acts of kindness.”
Nominate your favourite Albert-Eden volunteers here. Nominations close Monday 26 June.
Volunteers will be honoured in the following categories:
- Environmental - individual, group or organisation whose efforts in improving or protecting the environment go beyond what is expected to work towards our environmental goals
- Sport and recreation - individual or organisation whose contribution to making their sport, activity, club or team success is a step up from what’s expected
- Youth - an individual 18 or under who has demonstrated outstanding community service or selflessly assisted their peers
- Community - a local hero who has made an astonishing difference
- Emergency support - an individual, group or organisation showing kindness and selflessness by assisting those impacted by adverse weather.
Nominees can reside outside of the Albert-Eden area but their contribution must benefit Albert-Eden communities.
