Platinum Champions Award

In honour of Her Majesty The Queen and the great example she has set in her 70 years of service, Royal Voluntary Service has launched the Platinum Champions Awards for volunteers and we’d like to encourage applications from North & East Yorkshire. We know there are many unsung volunteer heros out there and this is a great chance to recognise a volunteer in your organisation. The deadline for applications is 18th April and to apply click here

The awards celebrate outstanding volunteers across the country who are making a difference every day.

BBC’s The One Show and Morning Live will be showcasing some of the stories as the official Broadcast Partner.

“I’m so delighted to be launching the Platinum Champions Volunteer Awards alongside Royal Voluntary Service. In honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s 70 years of service, we want to celebrate the outstanding contribution of volunteers. In the search for our Platinum Champions, we want to thank and recognise all of those truly special people that are making a real difference to our communities with their kindness and generosity.

“I hope many of you will share your stories of these local heroes and nominate them for a Platinum Champion Award. I believe it is these volunteers, enhancing the lives of others, that are the backbone of this country. I look forward to seeing our Platinum Champions, and all volunteers, celebrated at The Big Jubilee Lunch this summer.”

Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall
