“It’s good to celebrate the best of people in the world” - Champions of Change 2017

Nominations now open for your 2018 Champions of Change!

Today, the ingenuity, dedication and sheer tenacity of Rotary is tested to the limit, with more conflict, disasters and increasing hardship, all of which offer greater opportunities to serve and this is where Rotary members step up to the plate.

Champions of Change Awards are all about celebrating the humanitarian service of Rotary members, both at home and abroad. Rotary was delighted to share the inspiring stories from this year’s winners of the 2017 Awards, which took place at a ceremony at the House of Lords of 26th April, hosted by Baroness Harris of Richmond and presented by Lord William Hague.

In a new addition for 2017, Rotary also honoured members of the public with Community Champion Awards.

In this our fifth year of the prestigious Champions of Change awards we are delighted to announce that Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland is again looking to recognise 12 unsung heroes from within our membership, including simultaneously recognising eight outstanding non-Rotarian volunteers from within our communities.

Guidelines and nomination forms for both Champions of Change and the Community Champion Awards are available in the Members only area (sign in required). and nominations must be received by 12 noon on Wednesday 3rd January 2018.

Read the stories of our 2017 Champions of Change and Community Champions to get yourself inspired!
