Volunteers who have made a difference in Rugby over the past few months will be praised at a special awards ceremony.

But the organisers need your nominations - and the deadline is fast approaching.

Every year in Warwickshire, CAVA celebrates the phenomenal achievements of volunteers across Warwickshire with a volunteer awards event.

This year, the organisation will be holding a virtual Celebration of Volunteering During the Pandemic on July 14.

Carol Kavanagh, Rugby’s volunteering coordinator at CAVA, said: "During an exceptionally challenging year, people from all walks of life in Rugby and villages have taken the time to make a huge difference to people and their communities.

"These incredible people have come forward to help one another in a variety of ways, from delivering food parcels to vulnerable people, collecting essential medication for those who were shielding, fundraising for local charities, making phone calls to isolated people, to making scrubs for NHS staff."

The deadline for nominations is June 7.

"We are asking for nominations from you all for outstanding individual and team achievements," added Carol.

"Maybe it’s a neighbour who has gone out of their way to help, or a local group which has popped up to rally round the community.

"Let us celebrate these amazing unsung heroes who have made Rugby a better place over the last 15 months.

"All nominated individuals and groups will receive a limited edition design card to celebrate their achievement."

For a more details and a nomination form email Carol on [email protected] or call 01788 574258. CAVA can send you a paper form if you prefer. You can also find the link to nominations on the website www.wcava.org.uk
