Volunteers’ Week 2019 kicked off on Saturday 1st June until Friday 7th June 2019! We are very excited and we hope you are too.

To coincide with this year’s theme ‘Time to Celebrate’, Trafford Council have launched their 2019 Trafford Volunteer Awards, to celebrate the outstanding achievements and inspirational contribution that volunteers make in Trafford, and the important role the groups, organisations and businesses play in supporting them.

We are encouraging local residents and businesses to put forward and nominate their volunteer heroes, in four categories:

The closing date for nominations is Sunday 30th June and all nominees will be notified by Friday 5th July.

All nominees will be invited to a presentation with the Mayor of Trafford Cllr Rob Chilton to be recognised for their achievements and hard work, at Trafford Live on Sunday 21st July at Trafford Town Hall.
