The Basildon Borough Volunteer Awards recognise the amazing achievements and contributions that volunteers make across the Basildon borough. It could be someone who cares for a loved one, runs a community group or works in a charity shop. Our thanks to main sponsor Pinnacle PSG and sponsors Leonardo, Swan Housing and Clarion Futures.
The Mayor of Basildon, Cllr David Burton-Sampson, said: "Every day, volunteers across the borough give up their free time to create opportunities and improve the lives of others - whether that's raising money for charity, serving tea at the local day centre of giving advice and support to those in need.
"These awards give us an opportunity to shine a light on these selfless individuals and thank them for their efforts to make our borough a better place to live. I would urge anyone who knows a deserving individual to make a nomination for an award."
Everyone nominated for an award, and their special guests, will be invited to a prestigious Volunteer Awards Ceremony at Woodlands School, Basildon on the evening of Wednesday 30 October 2019. Winners in each category will be presented with a trophy, a certificate of appreciation and a prize voucher by the Mayor of Basildon and the award category sponsors.

If you know someone you believe deserves a pat on the back for their outstanding volunteer work, then this is your chance to see they get the recognition they deserve.
