East Northamptonshire Council is looking for the volunteer of the year

THE search is on to find East Northamptonshire’s volunteer of the year.

East Northamptonshire Council is looking for nominations for the award which celebrates special people who spend time helping others.

Council chairman Sylvia Hughes said: “Volunteers play a crucial role in the community and many make a real difference to the lives of people living in the district. It’s important the valuable contribution of volunteers and the organisations who include them is recognised.”

Nominations can be made at www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/volunteerawards or call Barbara Wiggins on 01832 742105. The deadline is March 2.

Two awards - one for under- 18s and one for over-18s - will be presented at a council meeting in April.
