The Mayor’s Award is a new scheme that has been set up to recognise people, community projects and businesses who volunteer in their spare time in Lewisham.
If you know an unsung hero or organisation who are making Lewisham a better place to live, please take a few minutes to nominate them.
There are three categories for the Mayor’s Award:
- Individual/volunteer – for their outstanding contribution to the local community
- Organisation/business – for its community commitment to the people of the borough
- Young person achievement award (for people aged 18 and under).
A judging panel will review all nominations for the Mayor’s Award and decide the winners in November 2017.
Deadline for nominations
The deadline for nominations is midnight on 29 September 2017.
A ceremony for the Mayor’s Award winners will be held on Friday 24 November 2017 at 6.30pm in the Civic Suite, Catford SE6 4RU.
