IHBC Branches have more time to celebrate retired members who volunteer their time and skills, with nominations for IHBC’s Marsh Award for ‘Community Contribution (Retired member)’, now open until 29 March!
IHBC President David McDonald said: ‘The IHBC Marsh Award for Community Contribution (Retired Member of the IHBC) is offered to celebrate the contribution of a retired IHBC member to the community, such as through BPT involvement, neighbourhood planning, civic and local trusts with heritage interests).’
‘The nomination process is extremely simple, while the winners are recognised with cash awards of £500 and a free full place at the IHBC’s Annual School every June, where we present the awards. For retired members of the IHBC (all categories), if the cash is not a priority, it could be donated to another deserving cause, as well as raising its profile.’
David added: ‘So please do consider promoting nominations or, for someone deserving that you know, completing the easy-fill form yourself.’
‘It does take a little effort, but could make all the difference to someone’s life skills or cherished projects.’
Nomination forms must be submitted by March 29 this year.
