Charity and Volunteer Award nominations now open

By John Charlton

The awards which are organised by Oxfordshire Community and Volunteer Action (OCVA), and help celebrate the great work undertaken by charitable organisations and individuals across the county will take place on May 9 in the Town Hall, Oxford.

Nominations for the awards must have their main beneficiaries in Oxfordshire. They can be nominated for more than one award and the winners will be selected by a panel of independent judges.

There are a number of categories including best new group, best innovation, environmental, best community project and best team of volunteers.


In 2016 the Charity of the Year Award went to My Life My Choice, a self-advocacy organisation that helps people with learning disabilities.
