Hip Hip Hooray - Cheering Volunteering is back!

Following the success of previous events, Cheering Volunteering returns for its sixth year.

The Central Bedfordshire Cheering Volunteering event awards and celebration evening grows each year.

The event is organised by Central Bedfordshire Council, working in partnership with the Volunteer Centres as part of Central Bedfordshire Together, to say thank you to those who give their time to help others.

Sponsored by Ringway Jacobs, Pro Logis, Grand Union Housing, Jeakins Weir and Beds Fire and Rescue, the Grove Theatre will again host the awards evening on Thursday, 4 June.

Last time, seven awards were presented on the night, with winners ranging from a volunteer with St John’s Hospice, to a couple who provide Christmas lunches every year for people in their Ampthill community. 

 There will seven awards in 2020:

  • Young Volunteer of the Year 
  • Volunteer of the Year 
  • Volunteer Group of the Year 
  • Outstanding Contribution
  • Lifetime Achievement 
  • Sports and Wellbeing 
  • Panel’s Choice

Nominations are now open and close on at 12pm on 20 April 2020 – and free tickets to the event will be available from the Grove Theatre from next month.
