Support Staffordshire Volunteer Star Awards 2019 - Sponsors needed

Wed 16 Jan 2019

Every day thousands of individuals across Staffordshire volunteer in their communities.  Volunteers are the lifeblood of the community and voluntary sector, and in many cases are the only reason most community groups, start, flourish and persist.  More and more we are seeing volunteers giving their time selflessly to support activities and projects that benefit some of the most vulnerable people in our society including the bereaved, the elderly, the lonely and those reaching end of life. During 2019 Support Staffordshire plan to hold local events to celebrate the contribtion volunteers make.

The Volunteer Star Awards, organised by Support Staffordshire, are cabaret style evenings held in a number of districts across Staffordshire, each with a local focus.  These events are aimed at publicly recognising and celebrating the valuable contribution volunteers play in supporting our community.  Each event is attended by up to 120 guests comprising of nominees, local charities, stakeholders and sponsors and takes place during June or July following on from National Volunteers’ Week, 1st- 7th June each year, the UK’s biggest celebration of Volunteering.  We are delighted to confirm the following events with more to follow soon:

  • Cannock Chase: 4th June 2019
  • East Staffordshire: 7th June 2019

The community, including businesses and individuals are able to nominate people they feel deserve to be recognised for their contribution.  This is a great opportunity for the community to say thank you and really appreciate the work being carried out by an amazing army of incredibly inspiring hidden heroes.

These events would not happen without the recognition, contribution and generosity of local businesses.  We have already secured sponsorship for a number of events however we still need more businesses to pledge their support.  By becoming a sponsor you are invited to join the judging panel and really become involved at the heart of the celebrations.

There are a number of ways you can get involved in the Volunteer Star Awards:

  • Official Event Sponsor
  • Programme Sponsor
  • Award Sponsor
  • ‘Goodie Bag’ Advertising
  • Nominate a hidden hero in your area

If any of these opportunities may be of interest to you or you would like to discuss an alternative custom package, we would be happy to talk with you.  Please email awards@supportstaffordshire.org.uk
