Due to the Covid pandemic we unfortunately could not host our annual awards evening. Disappointing for all 158 volunteers that were nominated. All our 2019-2020 volunteers will be included in our 2021 Awards evening.

About the Awards
Volunteer Appreciation Awards are 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 are received and collated, they are published on the website enabling club members 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 is chosen from each group (North, North West, West and South) as well as an overall winner. Winners are chosen by public vote.
There are no predefined categories, you can nominate anybody who deserves to be recognised and rewarded.
Young Volunteer of the Year Award
This award recognises the young volunteer (under 23) who has made the most significant contribution to his or her club during the season.
30 Year Award
The prestigious 30 Year Award is presented to volunteers who have given 30 years or more service to their club. Clubs should put forward any volunteers they have who meet this criteria.
Clubs are asked to put themselves forward for an award which may be in either or both of the following categories:
Growing the game, covering:
- Increased player base – men and/or women
- Increased match official base
- Improved facilities
- Other success stories which have enhanced rugby for your members or local community
Community engagement, covering:
- New volunteers
- School/University outreach
- Increased diversity in players and/or volunteers
- Other success stories which may provide an example for all our County Clubs to follow
This is your Club’s opportunity to celebrate success and we need a straightforward one page explanation of why you think your Club is worthy of particular recognition this season.
Long Service Awards
Please nominate volunteers at your club who have reached this 30 year plus milestone, please let us know their name and their role within your club, so we can recognise their service to the game and to your club with an award.
