CELEBRATION OF VOLUNTEERING 2016
 
Do you know someone who selflessly volunteers their time to help their community, group or club and think they should be recognised for their efforts?
 
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is now inviting nominations to honour those whose exceptional efforts as volunteers have made a difference to other people’s lives.
 
If you know of a local volunteer who you believe should be recognised for consistently and unselfishly offering up their time and effort for the good of their community, group or club you can nominate them by completing and returning an official nomination form.
 
Those nominated will be invited to a special event hosted by An Cathaoirleach Cllr. Barry Saul in May 2016.  The Cathaoirleach said: “I have always valued and hugely admired the work that is done in this County by volunteers and I hope this celebration will in a small way recognise their efforts and achievements.”
 
The conditions relating to nominations are as follows:
 
o       Nominees must have served in their voluntary role over the past year;
o       Individuals who receive pay in return for their services are not eligible;
o       You may not nominate yourself;
o       Nominations will only be considered when submitted on an official form;
o       Nominees should be over 18 years of age;
o       The maximum number of nominees allowed from any one group is one.
