It’s time for local people to nominate someone they know who volunteers their time to help local communities for the Clackmannanshire Citizen of the Year award.
The winner of the award, which is sponsored by the Lord Lieutenant's Trust, will be announced in March with the award being presented online.
The Council is also looking for nominations for Young Citizen of the Year, a category which is being awarded for the eighth year. Young Citizen of the Year provides an opportunity to recognise an inspirational local person, under the age of 18, who has enriched the lives of others or has been selfless in their actions.
This is the 17th year that the Provost of Clackmannanshire will host the awards to recognise the dedication and commitment that local people make to help improve the quality of life throughout the county. Though this year, awards will be presented online rather than in person.
Provost Tina Murphy said: "I know that there are many residents in Clackmannanshire who dedicate time and effort to make the lives of their fellow citizens better. I’m lucky enough to see some of this volunteering and its impact in the many events I am privileged to attend as Provost.
“I also know that many of these volunteers carry out these tasks quietly and without asking for recognition or thanks. So I’d encourage everyone in Clackmannanshire to think about nominating these tireless workers to help us all give them a tremendous thank you for everything that they do for all our communities. Please remember we also welcome nominations for those who may have been previously nominated but have not won this prestigious award.”
