Champions of Change 2016

Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland is once again on the look out for 12 unsung heroes to be recognised as part of the Champions of Change Awards.

The awards, now in their fourth year, celebrate the outstanding humanitarian service of Rotary members and are split into two categories: Domestic and International.

This year’s ceremony will also simultaneously recognise outstanding non-Rotarian volunteers from communities across the country, with the introduction of the Community Champion Award, which again will be awarded in Domestic and International categories. These members of the public will have led and inspired others and will be nominated by their local Rotary club.

The awards evening will once again be held at the House of Lords, taking place on Wednesday 26th April 2017, where awardees will also be joined by their local MP.

To get a flavour for some of the outstanding work Champions of Change have done in communities both at home and abroad, read the stories of two winners from the 2016 Champions of Change Awards:
