Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer Awards 2020
Nominations now open!
We are excited to announce that our 5th year of Portsmouth Inspiring Volunteer awards are now open for nominations. Across the city there are thousands of people volunteering their time to help support our community and environment and this is our way of helping to recognise all the fantastic work that they do.
Our previous awards 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 Together in the Hive Portsmouth and Pompey in the Community, the awards are an annual event funded through support from local businesses and organisations, this year it will be hosted at Portsmouth Football Ground in June 2020.
Nominations are open in the following categories:
Community Category – Volunteers that have shown exceptional engagement in their community
