Following the success of previous events, Cheering Volunteering is back this year.

This will be the fifth Central Bedfordshire Cheering Volunteering event as the success of the awards and celebration evening grows each year.

The event is run 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 Biffa, Pro Logis, Aragon, Weir Beds Fire and Rescue, the Grove Theatre will again host the awards evening on Tuesday, 4 June.

Last year, seven awards were presented on the night, with winners ranging from fundraisers for the Road Victims Trust to Friends of Houghton Hall to Leighton Buzzard Hockey and a men’s weight-loss coach.

There will seven awards in 2019:

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

Nominations opened on Monday, 14 January 2018–and free tickets to the event will be available from the Grove Theatre from this month. The Inspiring Volunteer funding pot of £5,000 for projects which encourage volunteering or kick-start new activities involving volunteering will also be available. Grant awards will be made from a minimum of £100 to a maximum of £1,000.

Councillor Carole Hegley, Executive Member for Social Care and Housing at Central Bedfordshire Council, said: “Cheering Volunteering is a highlight of the year’s calendar and I’m delighted that every year the event continues to go from strength to strength.”

Cllr Caroline Maudlin, Deputy Executive Member for Social Care and Housing added: “It’s fantastic that we continue to have this wonderful opportunity to celebrate the often-unheralded work volunteers do across Central Bedfordshire.

“Hearing about the amazing work they do and the impact it has on individuals and groups who benefit is always incredibly humbling. Helping others by volunteering can be so rewarding, and with local businesses sponsoring this event it is a great way for us to celebrate and thank our volunteers for what they do.

“So, if you want to say thank you to a special volunteer or volunteers, please put them forward for an award–and make sure you book your free tickets for the event too, as you are guaranteed a great night out with fabulous entertainment.”
