Nominations are now open for the 2018 ‘Shining Light’ Community Volunteering Awards. 

The annual awards organised by the Confederation of Community Groups were launched at a function in Newry Credit Union, the events main sponsor. This year marks the 10th anniversary of what has become one of the highlight events in the community calendar. 

The Patricia Graham ‘Shining Light’ Awards, named in memory of Patricia Graham, a dedicated member of the CCG staff team, are held in June each year during Celebrating Volunteers Week. The Awards have grown year on year and once again, the Confederation of Community Groups anticipates a very high level of interest in the Awards as they recognise the tremendous contribution made by community volunteers to life in this area.

The Confederation will be seeking sponsorship for each of the different Award Categories and, as in previous years, an Independent Adjudication Panel will be appointed.  The Panel will meet in early May to assess the Nominations and select the Award winners.  All Nominees will be recognised on the Awards night; Friday 8th June 2018 in the Canal Court Hotel, Newry.
