Let's have volunteer of the year award says Lib Dem

Liberal Democrat finance spokesperson and Cllr for Allerton and Hunts Cross, Flo Clucas, is calling for more to be done to recognise the work of volunteers.

She wants the City Council to look into whether there can be an award each year for the City's volunteer of the year.

Says Flo: "There are so many people making such a huge commitment to our City with their voluntary work that it would be great if there were some sort of civic award"

Cllr Clucas has submitted a motion to the City Council meeting tomorrow (24th May).  The Leader of the Council will be asked to respond in the coming weeks.

The text of the motion reads:

"That this Council, mindful of the commitment of thousands of Liverpool residents, who are involved as volunteers with organisations across the city, places on record its gratitude to those volunteers in this the European Year of the Volunteer.

Further, the Chief Executive is asked to investigate the potential for establishing an annual award for Liverpool's Volunteer of the Year."
