The Patricia Graham ‘Shining Light’ Awards, named in memory of Patricia Graham, a dedicated member of the staff team, is held in June each year during Celebrating Volunteers Week. The Awards have grown year on year and are now one of the highlights on the community calendar for this area. Welcoming everyone to the launch, Newry Mayor Dáire Hughes, said, “Newry and Mourne District Council are particularly happy to be associated with the Community Volunteering Awards as it provides the opportunity to recognise and pay tribute to the many unsung heroes who work tirelessly within local communities. “Each year, the range and quality of nominations surpasses all expectations and we are already looking forward to another memorable Awards Night.” David Cunningham, Chair of the Confederation of Community Groups said, “We will be inviting nominations, under eight different Award Categories, from groups or organisations affiliated to the Confederation of Community Groups.” The Award Categories are Age 16-24, Age 25-49, Age 50-64, Age 65+, Older Peoples Services, Youth Work, Community Group and Community Project. The Nomination Process will open on the 19th March 2015 and provides a ‘window of opportunity’ for those groups/organisations not yet affiliated to do so and avail of all the benefits of affiliation.
