THERE are many older volunteers in the north of England who do amazing, but often under-recognised work helping others in the community.
Older people’s charity Royal Voluntary Service has launched the 2013 Diamond Champions Awards, sponsored by McCarthy and Stone and supported by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, as president of the charity to celebrate the work of volunteers aged 60 and over.
Sixty Diamond Champions will be chosen, including 10 from the north of England, and 12 people from across Britain will be invited to a reception in the autumn.
We want people in the north of England to nominate their volunteer hero and celebrate the difference they make to the lives of others.
Nominations can be made at royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/diamondchampions the closing date is September 15, so get nominating!
