High Sheriff’s Awards open for nominations

4th November 2016

The High Sheriff of Suffolk, William Kendall, has launched the 2017 High Sheriff’s Awards and is calling for voluntary groups and individuals to submit their entries for the annual community awards. The High Sheriff’s Awards are designed to reward the volunteers in Suffolk who devote their time and energy to improve the communities in which they live and work, to make Suffolk a better and safer place to live.

If you know of a voluntary group or someone who deserves special recognition for their work in the community, devoting their lives to making Suffolk a better and safer place in which to live, make sure you nominate them for a prestigious High Sheriff’s Award.

The High Sheriff has created a brand new award for 2017: the ‘High Sheriff’s Special Award for Work in the Environment’ sponsored by Muntons plc of Stowmarket and will be given to the individual or group whose voluntary work, which in any way, involves enhancing Suffolk’s natural environment.

Entries can be submitted for seven categories:

  • Corporate Community Partnership of the Year
  • Community Group or Organisation of the Year
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Under 25 Young Volunteer of the Year
  • Youth Organisation of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Special Award for Work in the Environment

Nomination forms can be found here where you will also find the criteria for each category. Each award consists of a trophy and a cheque for the not-for-profit groups involved.

The closing date for nominations is 26th January 2017 and the award ceremony will take place on Thursday 23rd March 2017 at Snape Maltings. For further information, email Laura Ripman at laura.ripman@suffolkcf.org.uk or call 01473 602602.
