Celebrating People Award 2018

In 2009, High Peak CVS introduced a new annual award in honor of its second Chairperson, Chris Woodcock, the Celebrating People Award.  

Chris made a significant contribution to local groups within the High Peak including High Peak CVS. Chris had the unique ability to get to the nub of an issue, cut through to what is important and succinctly lay out the way forward. He was always dedicated, responsive, supportive and jovial. When he passed away, the High Peak voluntary sector lost one of its strongest advocates and supporters.

Through this award, High Peak CVS wants to celebrate and commemorate not only Chrisís contribution, but also his insight into the potential of voluntary activity for personal and community growth.  

The award will offer local groups the opportunity to raise their profile and gain recognition for the work they do. Our key assessment criteria will be around acknowledging your achievements and progress. Examples of the types of changes we are looking for maybe around revitalising your group, attracting new members, attracting new funding, developing a new project and or making a significant impact in your local community.  

Please note we will give priority to voluntary led community groups making a local impact with limited resources. 

You can apply on behalf of your group, you can be nominated by or nominate another group. A small panel will make the decision. 

High Peak CVS will present the Award, a commemorative plaque, framed certificate and cheque for £100 for the group, at its Annual General Meeting in October. The Award is open to all groups, however small or large, newly formed or long established and we encourage everyone to apply.  There is a simple application form which groups are asked to complete and return to: Jane Corke, High Peak CVS, Dunbar House, 105 Buxton Road, Whaley Bridge, High Peak SK23 7HX 

Email: Tel: 01663 735350

Closing date for applications is Wednesday 10 October 2018
