Nominate your community hero for a Coronation Champion Award
Published: 28 February 2023
The Royal Voluntary Service is launching the Coronation Champions Awards to celebrate exceptional volunteers across the country.
And people are now being asked to nominate their community champions.
The official Coronation project recognises individuals who have made a significant contribution to their communities.
The awards aim to celebrate the remarkable contributions of volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy towards making their communities a better place.
There are nine categories - supporting older people, supporting young people and children, crisis and welfare, community, sports, culture and heritage, health and care, sustainability and the environment and animal welfare.
Nominees should be over 14 and must have made significant contributions within the last five years.
Nominations are now open, and anyone can nominate a volunteer hero that they believe deserves recognition as a Coronation Champion. The deadline for nominations is Sunday 2 April.
500 volunteers will be chosen as Coronation Champions and will receive a specially designed, official Coronation Champions pin, and a signed certificate from Her Majesty The Queen Consort.
In addition, some of the Coronation Champions volunteers will have the opportunity to attend official Coronation celebrations such as the Windsor Castle Coronation Concert or a Coronation Garden Party.
Royal Voluntary Service CEO, Catherine Johnstone CBE said: “We want to celebrate the diverse range of volunteers who have made such an outstanding contribution to their communities. The Coronation Champions Awards will recognize these unsung heroes and celebrate their remarkable achievements.”
Nominating a volunteer for the Coronation Champions Awards is a great way to recognise the efforts and dedication of those who have been making a significant difference in their communities.
