National Volunteers’ Week 1 to 7 June 2017 – “Somerset Star” sought.

Nominate your ‘Somerset Star’

As part of the annual National Volunteers’ Week, Engage organises the local Volunteer of the Year Awards.

As part of the celebrations, we want you to nominate your shining stars and say ‘thanks’ to the volunteers who make a massive contribution to our local communities.  A deserved winner could be a group of volunteers or somebody who has cared for a relative in challenging circumstances or an unsung hero who has shown dedication and loyalty beyond the call of duty.  We’re not going to tell you who we think should be nominated – we’re leaving it entirely up to you.

The winners from each district area will be presented with an award as part of events planned to coincide with this year’s National Volunteers’ Week 1st to 7th June 2017, and nominations will be put forward to win the overall prestigious County Somerset Star Award at the Somerset County Council’s Chairman’s Awards in the Autumn.

You can either submit your nominations by contacting your local volunteer centre, or by visiting

Nominations will be accepted from Monday 27th February and the deadline for submissions is Friday 21st April 2017.
