Volunteer on stall

Do you know an outstanding volunteer or group of volunteers? Do they volunteer for an Irish in Britain member? If so, nominate them for an award and help give them the recognition they deserve!

Winners in each category will receive a commemorative trophy and a unique gift for their outstanding contribution.
