The High Sheriff of West Sussex, Dr Tim Fooks, has launched an award to celebrate and acknowledge publicly those who have shown exceptional acts of kindness and thoughtfulness during the pandemic lock-down and beyond through personal volunteering.
The Award is for individuals of any age and nominations can be made on behalf of those who have either received or have observed a volunteer doing great things for others. It should include information that demonstrates why the care given has been so remarkable and special.
All nominations will be acknowledged and those that are successful will receive a special certificate. If restrictions are lifted, they will also be invited as special guests to join the High Sheriff at a prestigious celebration event.
Nominations are open now and the nomination forms can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, or in local media and Public Libraries.
The closing date is 30 September.
