The One Point continues to support the HEY Smile Foundation's Volunteer Awards. An awards ceremony to recognise community champions who do all they can to help local people in need. Organised by HEY Smile Foundation and partners, The Volunteer Awards 2021 will go online at 6 pm on Wednesday, October 6th. Celebrating the work of selfless individuals and teams in a range of sectors across the Humber region.
While the first Volunteer Awards in 2019 took place in person, the Covid-19 pandemic saw organisers decide to move the awards online last year, attracting more than 150 nominations across ten categories. The event saw more than 1,000 YouTube views and 314 people watching at the event's peak.
This year, the judges, comprising event partners and sponsors, will choose a further ten worthy winners with categories recognising community volunteers, fundraisers, charity trustees, volunteer teams and more. At The One Point, we are incredibly proud to have been part of this event from the start. This year we are to continue our support as a sponsor for Public Service Volunteer Award.
This award recognises individuals who make an outstanding contribution to volunteering in the public services. These could include volunteering with Humberside Police, Humberside Fire and Rescue, the NHS, etc. Nominees can carry out volunteering on the front line or behind the scenes. These people help to make our community a better place.
