News release PR 2152

Issued 8 January 2013

There are just a few days remaining for people to submit nominations for the Mayor’s Awards for Voluntary Service, as nominations close on 18 January.

The awards recognise people who give their time and expertise to help other or raise vital funds for charity. Since the awards began in 1995, over 350 people have been recognised.

Borough Mayor, Cllr Geoffrey Wareham, said: “In my role as mayor, I’ve been fortunate to meet many people who volunteer their time to help others in west Norfolk. I am always impressed and indeed humbled by their dedication and feel that the work they do should not go unrecognised. These awards are a way of saying thank you to those special people who give their time selflessly and make our community a nicer place to be.”

Nominees must either live within the borough and have provided voluntary service or raised funds for charity since at least 1 January 2010 or live outside the borough and have provided voluntary service within the borough or raised funds for charities within the borough and have done so since at least 1 January 2010.

Nomination forms are available by post by writing to the Civic Officer, King’s Lynn Town Hall, King's Lynn, PE30 5DQ (01553 762124) or by e-mail at: Nomination forms can also be downloaded from the mayoral section of the borough council’s website.

For further information please contact the Civic Officer on 01553 762124 or email .

The scheme is kindly supported by BBC Radio Norfolk.


The award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 12 March at the town hall.
