Volunteer of the Year Award

Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to RDA in the last year? 

We know many of our volunteers go beyond the call of duty and the volunteer of the year award is a great way to recognise someone who has gone over and above, to make RDA possible.

RDA has a wonderful network of volunteers who help improve lives all over the UK, however many of these people do not get the recognition they deserve.

In order to acknowledge the wonderful contribution of our volunteers, each year RDA recognises a volunteer of the year in each of its 18 Regions along with an overall National Winner.

We need your nominations for individuals who have really made a difference to RDA.

Nominations close on 26 July 2016.

A winner in each Region will receive a trophy to recognise their achievement and the National Winner will be invited to attend our prestigious RDA Gala Awards ceremony  on 28 September 2016 at Drapers’ Hall, London to receive their award.

If you would prefer to submit your nomination in hard copy you can download a nomination form in word and pdf versions.

Who Made a Difference At Your Group?

Going the extra mile?

hands_compIt might be someone who has gone the extra mile with fundraising efforts or perhaps a Coach who has made a big impact in riding or driving sessions over the previous year.


A time of great need?

Work behind the scenes?
