Nominations are being sought in six categories to recognise Suffolk's heroic charities and volunteers in the High Sheriff Awards 2022.
High Sheriff of Suffolk, Edward Creasy, said he was delighted to announce nominations can be put forward from today and that he is excited the ceremony will be in person next year.
“This year I have had the privilege to meet so many wonderful charities and the volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to helping their causes, and this is a great time to celebrate the amazing achievements that they have fulfilled," said Mr Creasy.
"It is a chance to recognise all the amazing work that’s been done across the county in a really difficult environment.”
Shortlisted nominees will be invited to the glittering award ceremony at The East Of England Co-op's headquarters at Wherstead Park, on March 16, where the awards will be presented to the winners.
Voluntary groups should submit their entries by the closing date on January 17, 2022 at 5pm.
Tim Holder, head of public affairs for Suffolk Community Foundation who, with Lesley Dolphin from BBC Radio Suffolk, will host the awards ceremony, said: "Charities, community groups and local neighbourhood initiatives have given so much to support those in need during this very challenging time.
