Craig Womble, Deputy Manager of Volunteering in Dorset writes:

“This year we are once again holding the Volunteering Throughout Dorset Awards Evening which will be held on the 30th October at the Dorford Centre in Dorchester. This event, which has been running for more than 10 years, couldn’t happen without donations from businesses and organisations. Would you consider supporting this?

Throughout Dorset thousands of volunteers make a huge difference to our lives, this includes volunteering at heritage sites, areas of outstanding natural beauty, schools, hospitals, emergency services, in the arts environment or their local community. People are making a difference every hour, every day, and supporting those most in need.

It is Dorset’s main awards night specifically focussed on recognising local voluntary achievements.  Previous guests have included Lord and Lady Fellowes, Angus Campbell (Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset) and Andrea Begley, ambassador for RNIB in N. Ireland and winner of The Voice in 2013.

Volunteers are nominated in 3 categories: Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year and Volunteer Group of the Year. It’s their special night and gives organisations a chance to say a big thank you.  It’s inspiring to hear about the selfless contribution individuals give to make a difference.

We are seeking sponsorship to make it a success. This includes table sponsorship of £50 per table, category sponsorship of £300 per category and a main sponsor of £2500.  All sponsors will be publicly acknowledged as the night is promoted prior and post event.

This is a great opportunity to raise your profile, plus an opportunity to improve your social and community support.  We hope you feel you are able to support these wonderful volunteers. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions”.

Kind regards, Craig Womble, Deputy Manager
