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.

Speaking at the launch, Seán Hogan (President of Newry Credit Union) said “Newry Credit Union is delighted to be the main sponsor of the CCG  ‘Shining Light’ Community Volunteering Awards in this their 10th Anniversary year.  It gives us great pleasure to see local people volunteering to support their communities.The Credit Union itself comes from that same spirit of community self-help and it is indeed gratifying and reassuring to see that same ethos is still alive and well in our local area.”

Mr Raymond Jackson, (CEO, Confederation of Community Groups) said “CCG will be inviting nominations in the following eight categories; Age 16-24, Age 25-49, Age 50-64, Age 65+, Older People’s Project, Young People’s Project, Work, Community Group/Association and Community Project. The Nomination Process which is now open will close on 4th May 2018. CCG anticipates a high level of interest and a diverse range of nominations reflecting the community landscape locally.”

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.

The CCG Board would like to acknowledge the ongoing support of Newry Credit Union which has been instrumental in the event’s success.
