Nominations open for Irish in Britain’s Second Annual Volunteer Awards

Back to all news

Following the success of the inaugural Awards last year Irish in Britain announces the 2019 Annual Volunteer Awards for outstanding volunteers in the Irish community in Britain.

These awards will showcase the phenomenal work that volunteers do in our community and honour both groups and individuals for their extraordinary contribution. 

Do you know an outstanding volunteer or group of volunteers? Do they volunteer for an Irish in Britain member organisation? If so, nominate them for an award and help give them the recognition they deserve! Previous nominees, finalists and award–winners are also eligible for re–nomination.

There are three categories for nomination: 


Trustee (Committee or board member) 

Group (Individuals who regularly volunteer together, up to six) 

The Awards Ceremony

The ceremony will take place on 27 June in the Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith. The finalists in each category will be invited to attend the awards, where they will have a chance to meet special guests and receive a gift for their contribution to the community.

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

For more details on what to expect at the ceremony, please view our report from last year’s awards.
