Aberdeenshire Voluntary Action has launched the AVA Community Spirit Award.
AVA are asking you to nominate people in your community who you want to recognise or new and existing groups who have provided a brilliant service to those in need during the pandemic.
The AVA Community Spirit Award is open to everyone across Aberdeenshire including individuals or new and existing groups.
Over the last four months we have seen volunteering at its very best. Hundreds of people who have never volunteered before stepping up to help the most vulnerable in their local communities while existing community groups have excelled in supporting so many at their time of need. With so many examples of communities coming together showing wonderful Community Spirit in our rural villages and towns across Aberdeenshire we knew we needed to recognise this amazing effort before it is forgotten about, as life slowly starts to return to the ‘new’ normal.
The nomination process is very simple
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your nomination. Anyone can vote! Please give as much information as you can about the recipient with a contact name and email or postal address of the person or group you want to receive an AVA Community Spirit Award.

- The AVA Community Spirit Award opens on 1st July. Closing date for nominations is 17 July 2020 AVA will celebrate all the recipients of the AVA Community Spirit Award in their newsletter
