CALOR COMMUNITY CHAMPION OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS
Calor has just announced the launch of its Calor Community Champion 2013 competition. The aim of the competition is to recognise the work being carried out each day by unsung heroes in local communities across the island of Ireland. This all-island initiative is now entering its second year and Calor is looking for your help in the search for the 'Calor Community Champion 2013'.
Calor understands the work carried out each and every day by volunteers in Carlingford and Omeath Parish. They are calling out to communities across the country to make their voices heard, and support the search for local champions. These are volunteers who go above and beyond the call in our parishes, who get things done, and who work tirelessly each day to improve the lives of the people around them.
To recognise this work Calor provide a prize fund of over €10,000. The winner will receive €1,500 and a bursary of €7,500 to give to their nominated charity or local organisation. The two runners-up will each receive €500. Calor will also provide €500 for the person or organisation that nominated them.
Nominations to crown this year's champion volunteer will close at the end of September.
For information and to nominate your local champion please visit and 'like' at www.facebook.com/calorireland or Ph 1850 812450 for application form to be sent by post.
