The Slough Voluntary Sector Awards celebrate the achievements of local voluntary and community groups in Slough. These Groups make a huge contribution to the community and are an important part to what the government terms Civil Society.
The first event took place in 2012, to coincide with Slough Council for Voluntary Service's 75th Anniversary and was praised by the Mayor at the time, Cllr. Chrissie Small. She said, "Congratulations and thank you for arranging a fabulous evening, I will remember it as one of the highlights of our mayoral year."
The nomination process will commence in June, with the deadline for submissions being Friday 20th July. So, if you know of a fantastic voluntary group or Charity or someone who gives their all to their volunteering role, don't forget to nominate them.
The Awards ceremony takes place on Friday 16th November. All those shortlisted will receive a certificate on the night and the overall winners in each category will receive a trophy.
Slough Voluntary Sector Awards are organised by Slough Council for Voluntary Service (Charity No. 1069086)
