Volunteer Awards 2020–2022: Nominations Now Open!
**Nominations For 2020 – 2022 Are Now Closed**
The 2020–2022 Gosport Volunteer Awards are now open, and nominations can be made through the online forms below. The Awards are organised by Gosport Voluntary Action and supported by Gosport Borough Council, and are a way of thanking our wonderful volunteers for the time, effort and dedication they give to the local community. Given the unfortunate need to postpone the 2020 Volunteer Awards as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year we will be accepting nominations for volunteers who have been active between 2020 and 2022.
Generally, an organisation will nominate their own volunteers. However, volunteers who are not part of an organisation can be nominated by individuals. Every volunteer nominated, who meets the criteria, will receive a Volunteer Award and will be invited to attend the Volunteer Awards Evening in Gosport on the evening of Wednesday, 1st June 2022. Volunteers who do not wish to attend will be sent their certificates in the post**.
**For those 2020 volunteer award winners who were sadly affected by our cancellation of the 2020 awards (due to the Covid-19 pandemic) and who asked us to retain their certificates (rather than sending them in the post), we look forward to welcoming you to this year’s ceremony and will be sending invitations in due course.
To nominate your volunteers, please follow the steps below and make sure your nominations have been submitted by midday on Friday, 22nd April 2022.
Please make sure you enter the details for the volunteer you are nominating accurately, including their name (we will spell their name on the certificate as you have entered it), and their email address (this is where we will send their invitation). If the volunteer doesn’t use email, please note this on the form and we will send a printed invite by post.
You will receive a system-generated email providing you with a copy of the information submitted within your online forms. Please make sure you enter your email address correctly to receive the notification email.
We will be creating a photo slideshow, which celebrates volunteering in Gosport, to display on the Volunteer Awards Evening and ask that each organisation submits up to 10 photos for this purpose. We will also share the slideshow via social media and on our website, and you would be very welcome to use and share should you wish to do so. The photos we use need to be good quality, high-resolution photos, which you have permission to use and publish. Please see instructions below. We thank you for your valuable input in creating the celebratory slideshow and look forward to receiving your photos!
