2017 Nominees

On Thursday 7th June 2018 Volunteer Dundee at The City Quay are hosting an award ceremony to recognise and celebrate the hard work and dedication of Dundee’s Volunteers and their Volunteer Managers.

In Dundee we have over 26,000 adults who give up their time to various causes and charities across the city. We want to take this opportunity to recognise those volunteers who have given so much back to their communities through their volunteering. We will also recognise those who support volunteers to give them an excellent volunteering experience through the Volunteer Manager of the Year category. We have had an excellent response and will be presenting awards in following categories:

Volunteer of the year – a volunteer who has shown dedication and commitment throughout the year and gone above and beyond in the usual volunteering role.
Sponsored by MMG Archbold

Volunteer Team of the Year – a team of volunteers who have gone the extra mile to make a difference in the community. It could be a team who took part in a one off volunteering project or who regularly volunteer as a team.
