Hertfordshire Volunteer Centres Annual Conference and  Awards Ceremony

Are delighted to announce that


 Now in its 9th Year, this award is very special as nominations can only be made by volunteers. The idea is to champion organisations who demonstrate quality in their volunteer management. To be eligible, organisations must demonstrate a basic level of good practice as demonstrated by achieving the Hertfordshire Valuing Volunteer Management 6 Point Promise – just contact us for more details about how you can sign up to this.

 The winner will receive a trophy, complete with our new branding, to keep for a year to show how much they value their volunteers and how this appreciated by their team.

 All nominees for the award will be invited to join us at the Hertfordshire Volunteer Centres Annual Volunteering Conference hosted by Beales Hotel Hatfield on 6th June as part of our Volunteers Week celebrations where the trophy will be presented by the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire.

Volunteering Herts visited the Hertfordshire Leisure Centre dedicated to 2012 double gold medallist, Laura Trott, as part of their Motivating Herts campaign which pays tribute to volunteers in Hertfordshire and celebrates the wonderful legacy of the 2012 volunteers.

Their aim to inspire even more people to get involved in volunteering was boosted by Laura’s recent fantastic double gold performance in Rio 2016 and her tribute to the people behind the scenes who contribute to her success.  Each Olympic Games needs volunteers to make it happen and local organisations could not deliver their vital services and activities without them either!
