A huge ‘thanks’ must go to the people who entered these wonderful voluntary groups.
The TrustPower Far North Community Awards, which recognise and reward voluntary groups for the outstanding contribution they make to the local community, are run in partnership with the Far North District Council.
TrustPower Community Relations Coordinator Suzi Luff says she is very pleased with the variety of entries from across the district for this year’s Community Awards.
“The Far North District is home to a number of voluntary and community based groups and organisations who work hard to make Far North a better community to be a part of. The Community Awards highlight and celebrate the huge contribution of these voluntary groups, both behind the scenes and through their practical hands on approach. I’m looking forward to celebrating the successes and achievements of these groups.
A huge ‘thanks’ must go to the people who entered these wonderful voluntary groups as well,” says Mrs Luff.
The Awards cover five categories; Heritage and Environment, Health and Wellbeing, Arts and Culture, Sport and Leisure, and Education and Child/Youth Development. The category winners receive $500 and runners-up receive $250.
The Supreme Winner will take home $1,500, a trophy, framed certificate and an all-expenses paid trip to the TrustPower National Community Awards.
The 2013 TrustPower National Community Awards will be held in the Invercargill and Southland region in March 2014.
The entries for the TrustPower Far North Community Awards are currently being prepared for judging.
The TrustPower Far North Community Awards will be announced and presented at a function on Monday 8 July, to which all entered organisations as well as those that entered groups will be invited.
Please note: the new date for the TrustPower Far North Community Awards, these will now be held in early July!
