Making a difference community awards 2019


What was it about?

Our annual Making a Difference Community Awards recognise the contribution that volunteers make in strengthening our community, and improving the quality of life for residents. The awards recognise both individual and group volunteering contributions.

We asked you to nominate a person or group that deserved recognition for the help they gave to others.

Please note: Hinckley & Bosworth Borough councillors are not eligible for these awards.

To submit your nomination, we asked you to tell us:

  • Your nominees, address, telephone number
  • How your nominee makes a difference
  • Upload a photograph of your nominee (optional)
  • Upload additional information (optional)
  • Your name, address, contact details


A judging panel will consider all nominations and the awards will be presented at an awards event on Thursday 6 June 2019 between 2pm and 4pm, at Hinckley Rugby and Football Club, Leicester Road, Hinckley, during national volunteers' week. All nominees will be invited to the event and will receive a medal and a winners' trophy.
