About

Founder: Christina Gabbitas wants to recognise volunteers throughout North, East, West and South Yorkshire who go above and beyond to help others and causes , provide emotional and social support, inspire, motivate and play a key role in supporting or fundraising for a range of projects and activities. Our annual volunteer awards will recognise the incredible contribution that volunteers make.

Our first event was held on 8th May 2019 and was huge success, recognising many inspirational women who spend their time volunteering to help others. The event will now be an annual event in Yorkshire. The awards will be made in 6 categories, with prizes and recognition for a winner and ‘highly commended’ in each category.

All shortlisted volunteers will receive a certificate and awards will be presented to winners in each of the following categories:

Sport Volunteer Award

Project Volunteer Award

Young Volunteer Award

Corporate Volunteering Award

Community Volunteering Award

Care Volunteer Award

There will be an additional award for Outstanding Volunteer of the Year which will be made by our judges, after reviewing all of the nominations.
