We are pleased to announce that we are launching a new ‘Volunteer Services Award’ that will be presented to selected nominated volunteers during this year’s Volunteers Week 1st – 7th June 2021.

Our Exemplary Service Awards are a way for Cornwall Hospice Care to recognise and reward Volunteers for their outstanding contributions and commitment to our charity, regardless of length of time they have volunteered.

Members of staff may nominate a volunteer for specific and significant services or activities that demonstrate exemplary service or performance. This is for those volunteers whose input is over and above that which would normally be expected of them. Did a volunteer put in extra effort to do something or help someone? Have they reached a specific goal or an individual achievement? This is your opportunity to nominate someone who has contributed by devoting their time, energy, passion and expertise to helping people and our charity.

This award will be presented during Volunteers Week this year at the discretion of the Board of Trustees and on the recommendation of the Nomination Panel who will be made up from a group of staff from across the charity. Staff can continue to nominate volunteers throughout the year for future award presentation events.

Nomination Process

Members of staff may nominate any volunteer for an Exemplary Service Award by following this process:

  • Complete the Exemplary Service Award Nomination form (available online on our SharePoint homepage, or from the Volunteer Services Team at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice.)
  • The nomination must include the reason for the Volunteer being nominated. We are wanting the volunteer’s inspirational story and the impact and difference it has made either to you, your colleagues or to others. Please include how long they have volunteered for, how many shifts they do a week and what they enjoy about their volunteering.
  • You should then submit the nomination to the Volunteer Services Coordinator by email to jwilkins@cornwallhospice.co.uk who will pass it to the nomination panel.
  • You and the Volunteer will be notified after the selection process has been completed.

Please submit your nominations by Thursday 27th May 2021

Please do not hesitate to contact the Volunteer Services Team if you have any queries.
