A huge ‘thanks’ must go to the people who entered these wonderful voluntary groups.
With 32 entries received for the Trustpower Queenstown Lakes District Community Awards, locals have really got behind their volunteers.
The Trustpower Queenstown Lakes District Community Awards, which recognise and reward voluntary groups for the outstanding contribution they make to the local community, are run in partnership with the Queenstown Lakes District Council.
Trustpower Community Relations Representative Emily Beaton says the awards help recognise people who put their hearts and souls into helping out.
“The generosity of volunteers and the variety of projects they lend a hand to for their local community never ceases to amaze me. Once again the Queenstown Lakes District community has got behind their community, and I’m stoked that we will be celebrating so many talented, resourceful and hard working volunteers through this year’s Trustpower Community Awards.
A huge ‘thanks’ must go to the people who entered these wonderful voluntary groups as well,” says Emily Beaton.
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 2014 Trustpower National Community Awards will be held in the Wellington region in March 2015.
The entries for the Trustpower Queenstown Lakes District Community Awards are currently being prepared for judging. The Trustpower Queenstown Lakes District Community Awards will be announced and presented at a function on Wednesday 12 November, to which all entered organisations as well as those that entered groups will be invited.
