Braintree District Volunteer Awards

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have decided to cancel this year's Braintree District Volunteer Awards.

About the Braintree District Volunteer Awards

The Braintree District Volunteer Awards hosted by Braintree District Council and Community360. The awards celebrate the valuable contribution volunteers make to the district.

Nominations open on the 5th of February 2020 at 9:00 am and close on the 1st of May 2020 at 5 pm.

Who can I nominate?

You can nominate someone who spends time doing something unpaid that benefits individuals or groups or the environment? This can include volunteering through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action. It might be fundraising, running a sports club, looking after the environment, organising an event, or helping around the community.
