Grampian Volunteer Transport Awards
The third biennial Grampian Volunteer Transport Awards, which seek to recognise the important work of volunteer drivers and escorts in the Grampian area are now open for nominations!
Recognise your local volunteer transport heroes
The awards, which were first established in 2014, hope to highlight the vital role community transport plays in allowing people access to health and social care services in the north-east. Supported by a variety of Health & Transport Action Plan (HTAP) partner organisations across public, third and commercial sectors, the awards are seeking nominations under three categories:
Volunteer Driver of the Year
To be awarded to an individual who has given their time without charge to drive someone in their community.
Volunteer Escort of the Year
To be awarded to an individual who has given their time without charge to escort someone using transport services.
Organisation of the Year
To be awarded to a voluntary sector group that has done the most to make a difference through its transport services to a local community.
The winner of each category will receive a certificate and prize worth £200 sponsored by First Aberdeen and Stagecoach North Scotland.
Nominations are open until Tuesday 25th September with prizes being awarded on Friday 9th November at an event being held in Aberdeen Town House.
