The High Sheriff of Clwyd Awards are your opportunity to celebrate your charitable champions. They can be individuals or community groups with charitable aims that have made an outstanding contribution to their communities.
Volunteering is an amazing way to give back to the community and can make life-changing differences to the people that it affects. Many of the jobs that people do are often thankless, and difficult – facing all weathers and challenges. From litter picking to planting wild flowers, to delivering shopping and taking people on trips, right up to helping people paint, or build things. Volunteering can be this, and everything in between and beyond.
If your community has been impacted in a positive way the contribution of volunteers, and you would like to say thank you, why not consider nominating them for the High Sheriff of Clwyd Awards. As the High Sheriff themselves have said “Volunteers are active at the heart of every UK community, and it is very clear that the millions of people who give their time and skills to charities and community projects are quite simply an essential part of the world today. Most of these people consider themselves ordinary but many of them are doing extraordinary things.” Why not help them know just how extraordinary they are with a nomination?
