It is time to recognise and nominate to Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland for one of 12 unsung heroes, 6 from within our membership as Champions of Change, and 6 Community Champions from members of the public who have done extraordinary things. Last year District 1100 nominated a winner of the national award Gerry Watkins from Cirencester Rotary, in recognition of his work with the homeless with the "The Big Yellow Bus Project" see https://www.rotarygbi.org/magazine/august-september-2021/champions-awards-simply-making-a-difference/Other nominations were made and are recognised in the District Conference "Crazy Times"

The awards shine a light on the hard work and commitment of people who are vital in our communities and abroad, but are sometimes overlooked.

Guidelines and nomination forms for both Champions of Change and the Community Champion Awards will be available on the member’s area of the rotarygbi.org website as shown below (you need to be signed in to the website to access the link).
