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 looking to recognise 12 unsung heroes from within our membership.

 
The Community Champions Awards will again be included within the Champions of Change as we seek to simultaneously recognise eight outstanding non-Rotarian volunteers from within our communities (Split between Home and International).
 
Guidelines and nomination forms for both Champions of Change and the Community Champion Awards will be available on the members area of the rotarygbi.org website. Please note that you are required to sign in to use the “For Members” area of this website.  The forms are also attached for your convenienceLink

From the nominations submitted, your district shall choose the Champions of Change and Community Champions that shall be submitted to RIBI for consideration. Nominations should be sent in Microsoft Word format.

A panel headed by 2017/18 President Denis Spiller, shall determine the 12 Rotarian unsung heroes of 2017/18; the RIBI International and Home teams will decide on eight non-Rotarian Community Champion awardees.
 
The event will take place in Cardiff, at the City Hall on Friday 18th May 2018. 
 
The awardees, nominating District Governors, nominating District International and Home Chairmen, will be invited to attend the event as a guest of the Association.  Travel to the event is self-funded.

In addition to giving all important recognition to those who are really making a humanitarian difference, each year Rotary gains incredible PR from the award ceremony.
 
Thank you for working to promote humanitarian activity by recognising People of Action – we look forward to receiving your district nominations!
