Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer Awards –  The Winners in 2018

More than 85 nominations were received for the Portsmouth Together Inspiring Volunteer Awards 2018.

And the winners are… well the community of Portsmouth. The awards nominations have shown that so many volunteers across our city bring something valuable to the lives of those around them. Our communities are a better place for having them in it.  They share their time and energy selflessly, in an age when it is so often said that people are selfish.

Organised by Portsmouth Together and Pompey in the Community, the awards are an annual event funded through support from local businesses and organisations. The Awards presentations took place at Fratton Park on 7th June 2018 and are parts of Portsmouth Volunteers Week celebrations.

This year awards were given in the following eight categories.

Outstanding Contribution Award – Supported by Portsmouth City Council
