With 60 entries received for the Trustpower Taupō District Community Awards, locals have really gotten behind their volunteers.

 

The Trustpower Taupō 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 Taupō District Council and The Radio Network Taupo. Entries for the Community Awards closed on Friday 18 July.

Trustpower Community Relations Representative Kathlene Cook says the awards help recognise people who put their hearts and souls into helping out.

 

“The Trustpower Community Awards are all about recognising this district’s many generous, talented, resourceful and hard-working volunteers doing so much for the benefit of others.

A huge ‘thanks’ must go to the people who entered these wonderful voluntary groups as well,” says Kathlene.

 

 

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.
