Last chance to nominate your volunteering champ

Royal Voluntary Service’s Diamond Champions campaign, sponsored by McCarthy & Stone and supported by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall in her capacity as president of the charity, aims to recognise the many older volunteers in the South East of England who do amazing, but often under-recognised, work helping others in the community.

Sixty Diamond champions will be chosen including 10 from the South East of England; 12 people from across Britain will be invited to a reception in the autumn.

The closing date for nominations is Sunday, September 15, and we want people in the South East to nominate their volunteer hero and celebrate the difference they make to the lives of others. Nominations can be made at

Make sure your Diamond champion is in with a chance!
