Nominations open for prestigious Mayor’s Community Awards

Nominations have opened for this year’s Mayor’s Community Awards, which recognise those who have given up their own time to help others within the Kingston community.

A nominee should be someone who has given up their own time and, without prompting, offered to help other people or the community. 

It could also be someone who has done something which benefits the neighbourhood or even the whole of our borough.

Alternatively, an individual could be nominated in recognition of an act of supreme effort, strength, bravery or achievement.

The Mayor will also present an award to a young person under the age of 21 who sets an example to their peers through voluntary work. This excludes community work undertaken as part of Duke of Edinburgh's Award or other similar programmes. 

Councillor Roy Arora, Mayor of Kingston, said: 

“It’s so important to take time to thank those who have devoted time and effort to benefit others. If you know of someone who you think should be nominated for an award then we want to hear from you.”

To nominate someone for the Mayor’s Award, visit the Mayor’s Community Award webpage. The deadline for nominations is 10am, Thursday 18 February 2016.
