Clubs have have now submitted their nominations for Individual Volunteer Regocnition Award and voting is now OPEN!
President’s VII and 30 Year Awards
Nominations for the President’s VII and 30 Year Service awards will remain open until Friday 26th May. To submit your nominations please click on the appropriate button below to complete the online nomination form.
The annual Middlesex Club Volunteer Appreciation Awards will be held at Twickenham Stadium on Friday 9th June. This year the awards are being held in conjunction with the RFU Mitsubishi Volunteer Awards, so it will be an extra special evening for our volunteers.
2016 Award Winners
The Volunteer Appreciation Awards are the county’s way of recognising the hard work and commitment of our club volunteers without whom our clubs could not function.
Awards will be made in four categories: 30 Year Service award which recognises volunteers who have given thirty years or more service to their clubs; the President’s VII awards which recognise clubs who have performed exceptionally well in one of seven areas of activity chosen by the President; the Individual Awards which recognise outstanding achievements of individual volunteers (one from each geographical group, and one overall winner), and the Young Volunteer of the Year award, which as it’s name suggests, recognises the contribution made by a young volunteer under the age of 23.
Once the nominations have been received and collated, they will be published on the website and club members will be able to vote for the Individual Award nominee they think is the most deserving of being recognised by the County.
These awards recognise individual volunteers that have been nominated by their club for making a difference in any area of club activity. One winner will be chosen from each group (North, North West, West and South) as well as an overall winner. Winners will be chosen by public vote.
There are no predefined categories, you can nominate anybody who deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
