The City of London would like to recognize the outstanding volunteers from within our sporting community and would like your help in submitting nominations. Sport and recreation depend on volunteers and without them amateur sport would not exist. Volunteers carry out virtually every key function in amateur sport including coaching, administration, officiating, event organization, and execution. More importantly they have a key role to play in creating a safe environment for kids in sports.
This year, the City of London is hosting the 3rd Annual Volunteer Recognition Event on Wednesday April 26, 2017 at 6 PM to recognize each of the amazing volunteers, and we would like your help to acknowledge who they are.
Individuals are eligible to be nominated if they volunteer within the City of London boundary. Volunteers must work with sporting clubs, school teams and various boards and non-profit organizations within the City of London.
We will accept one nomination per organization or school until March 31, 2017. To nominate a volunteer please fill out the Volunteer Recognition Form. If you have any questions or require any further information, please contact Mike Vandertuin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-661-2500 ext. 5197.
The City of London and London Sport Council wish to thank all 60+ recipients and those who nominated them for attending the 2nd Annual Volunteer Recognition Event! It was a terrific evening of celebrating some of the volunteers who made the London Sport Community so powerful!
