2020 Amy Large Volunteer of the Year awards now open

Friday 7 February 2020

Inner West Council’s annual Amy Large Volunteer of the Year awards are now open.

The awards honour local resident and much loved volunteer Amy Large, who passed away in 2015.

Amy was widely known for her long years of service supporting Birchgrove Public School committees, Birchgrove Scorpions Junior Rugby League team, Balmain Town Hall and Back to Balmain Day committees, as well as volunteering for the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

The awards, formerly known as Volunteer of the Year, acknowledge outstanding contributions to local families, organisations, programs and individuals in need.

There are four award categories: Young Volunteer, Adult Volunteer, Senior Volunteer, and Volunteer Team/Group.

The winner in each category is eligible to win the Amy Large Volunteer of the Year Award, and is nominated for the 2020 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards.

Last year, Bundjalung woman and artist Bronwyn Bancroft was named the Amy Large Volunteer of the Year (pictured right).

Bronwyn has volunteered as a senior strategist/curator/mentor/manager at Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative for a decade.

Nominations are judged on:

• Special or outstanding features of the volunteering
• The impact and benefit of the volunteering
• Examples of how the volunteer has displayed dedication above and beyond the norm

The awards – along with the Citizen of the Year Awards – will be presented during National Volunteer Week at Ashfield Town Hall on Thursday 21 May.
