VOLUNTEERS are being encouraged to nominate their organisations for The Essex Volunteer Centres Awards.
The winning group will receive �1000 cash as part of a scheme that recognises the contribution volunteering makes to community life.
Winning groups need to demonstrate that they use good practice in providing encouragement, support, training and supervision to volunteers.
Manager of Volunteer Centre Uttlesford, Stephanie Adams, said: "Volunteers are a fundamental part of our community as many of our community services would not be delivered without them. This is a great opportunity for volunteers and community organisations to be formally recognised and rewarded for all their fabulous work."
The grant scheme is part of the High Sheriffs' Award, which was established in 1993 to reward communities.
