England Athletics Volunteer Awards

England Athletics Volunteer Awards

It is now our 10th year of volunteer awards!  That’s 10 years of celebrating the outstanding contribution volunteers across England give to make our sport happen.  It’s now your opportunity to recognise the everyday hero in your club or group by nominating them for a Volunteer Award.  Go on, make someone’s day and let them know how much their support means to you and the sport.  We even have a few new categories this year!

The awards are supported by Track & Field Tours and Spirit of 2012.
