The inauguration of the Play2Give Volunteer Award

Published: 25th March 2021

We are delighted to announce that we are instituting our first ever Play2Give annual award for volunteers.

Here at Play2Give, we have such appreciation for the incredible work that all our volunteers and fundraisers do. Without you, we would not be able to provide the support that we do to such a range of incredible causes. Our motto is ‘Changing, Transforming and Saving Lives’ and that’s what you, our volunteers and fundraisers, do every single day. Whether it is through increasing awareness of our causes, raising money for them, or supporting them in some other way (e.g. through gift donations as part of our Sleigh2Give drive), you are making a real, concrete difference in people’s lives. In our minds, that makes you all heroes!

As many of you will know, we lost one of our long-time supporters, Angela Norris, in November last year. In honour of her, we are delighted to announce the institution of the “Play2Give Angela Norris Volunteer Award”. While all of our supporters are appreciated beyond words, this Award offers an opportunity for the Play2Give family to come together and recognise a level of commitment that truly inspires.

The Award will be given to one recipient each year in recognition of their exceptional contribution to Play2Give. Recipients will receive a stunning Play2Give award plaque, a certificate signed by Andrew Baker MBE BCAv, and a £20 gift card at the next ball, which will be held on Saturday 12th March 2022. Nominations for the award will open in January 2022. Once nominations are received, the Play2Give leadership team will convene and select a winner. All nominees will likewise receive a certificate.

Please note that further information on the nomination process will be published in due course.

As a fundraising organisation, we are committed to operating as efficiently as possible. As such, the Award plaque and gift card will be funded by a private donor.
