Rotary Champions of Change Awards heads to Cardiff

It is the time of year again where we shine a line on the unsung heroes of volunteering.

Unsung heroes from across Great Britain and Ireland will be honoured at the fifth annual Rotary Champions of Change Awards night in Cardiff on 18th May.

The Lord Mayor of Cardiff will host the event in the City Hall, along with other local dignitaries and supporting Rotary members.

From an impressive set of nominations, 12 Rotary members will be made Champions of Change and seven members of the public will be crowned Community Champions.

These dedicated volunteers will pick up their awards from National Council for Voluntary Organisations’ Chair Peter Kellner and Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland President Denis Spiller.

They have all been chosen for outstanding and inspirational work which has left a significant impact on communities at home and abroad, with Community Champion Awardees being nominated by Rotary.

This year’s Awardees join around 50 other previous Champions who have worked tirelessly to inspire, influence and implement change and do good to enhance lives.

Denis Spiller commented: “To take this event to Cardiff is a double dividend as we can also savour the Centenary celebrations of Rotary in Wales. The work of Rotarians in the community and our colleagues from other organisations set an example that others may follow.”

In the lead up to awards night, all the Champions will be featured on our website to highlight their achievements. Any Rotary member or dedicated volunteer can aspire to become a Champion.

Hyrwyddwr yn unig – that’s “Just Champion”!
