Nominate your Rural Volunteer Now

Support Cambridgeshire Partner Hunts Forum is proud to announce the launch of the Rural Volunteer Award in honour of David Morgan MBE.

David served as a trustee of Hunts Forum for over 9 years, taking roles as both chair and treasurer. He was a much-valued member of the board but this is just a small part of the contribution he has made to community organisations across Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

Since joining Beds and Cambs Rural Support Group in 2002, over 1,500 farming and rural families have received support to tackle issues such as ill-health, isolation, financial hardship, redundancy and homelessness. His patience and kindness to those in trouble is legendary.

He was awarded an MBE for services to vulnerable people in The Queen’s New Years Honours list 2019.

David’s exceptional contribution to rural communities has inspired Hunts Forum to create the Rural Volunteer Award. Hunts Forum invites community organisations, councils and individuals to nominate the people in their rural communities across Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire who go out of their way to improve the lives of others. It may be to overcome the specific challenges of rural life, such as transport or isolation, or an ability to bring rural communities together.

Please click here to download a nomination form. The closing date is 20 February 2019.

Please note that nominating organisations and nominees can operate in any part of the county, and do not have to be based in Huntingdonshire.

Nominations can be returned by email to sue@huntsforum.org.uk or printed and posted to Sue Prior, Hunts Forum, The Maple Centre, 6 Oak Drive, Huntingdon PE29 7HN. 

The inaugural Rural Volunteer Award winner will be announced at Hunts Forum’s Annual Conference, AGM and Awards event on 26 February 2019 at Wood Green Animal Shelter.
