Fingal Mayor’s Awards 2023 – Call for Nominations, & Huntstown’s Changing Gears Course – Transitions in later life

News General News

This year, the Fingal Mayor’s Awards will recognise Community Champions across Fingal by celebrating the amazing work by individuals who have volunteered their time to support their local communities over the last year. From washing a neighbour’s windows, mowing someone’s grass, doing someone’s weekly shopping or planting trees, Fingal County Council wants to hear about the extraordinary lengths people have gone to in their local area as they look to help others.

Purpose of these Awards

These awards are to help us recognise, reward, celebrate and honour the achievements and endeavours undertaken by those unsung heroes in our community. These are the people who go under the radar, that go about helping others selflessly and don’t receive the recognition they deserve for the work they do to make Fingal a great place to live, work, visit and do business in.

Awards Timeline

Nominations can be made online from 22 March 2023, with the closing date at 5pm on 20th April 2023.
