Awards launched for ‘unsung heroes’
SLIGO County Council’s Cathaoirleach’s Awards 2018 have been launched and nomination forms are now available. The initiative acknowledges the contribution of the many unsung heroes who carry out invaluable voluntary work in our communities.
Cathaoirleach, Councillor Martin Baker said:‘We all know special people who have given outstanding service to their community, and the Awards Scheme provides an opportunity to publicly honour them for their efforts.
“The award categories encompass a wide area of voluntary activity, and I am asking people to take the time to submit a nomination form for a person or group they hold in special regard.”
The Award categories are: Arts & Culture; Young Enterprise; Environment and Heritage; Community (individual; Community (Group); sports; schools and spirit of Sligo.
The winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony in County Hall in December.
Nomination forms and details of the scheme are available from: Corporate Services Section, Sligo County Council, Riverside.
