Nominate your RNIB volunteering hero for a Coronation Champions Award

As part of the upcoming Coronation celebrations, you have an exciting opportunity to nominate some of the amazing people who volunteer with RNIB for the Coronation Champions Awards.

If you have been supported, in the last five years, by an RNIB volunteer and feel they should be recognised for their dedication, professionalism, knowledge, or if something from the experience really stood out for you, then please consider nominating them for the Coronation Champions Awards.

Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to volunteering for RNIB in the past five years?

To honour Their Majesties’ service to the country, 500 volunteers will be chosen as Coronation Champions and will receive a specially designed, official Coronation Champions pin and a signed certificate from Her Majesty The Queen Consort. There will also be opportunities for some of the Coronation Champions volunteers to attend events taking place to celebrate Their Majesties’ Coronation across the Bank Holiday weekend of 6 May.

Volunteers from each of the following categories will become the Coronation Champions:

  • Supporting older people
  • Supporting young people and children
  • Crisis and welfare
  • Community
  • Sports, culture and heritage
  • Health and care
  • Sustainability and the environment
  • Animal welfare
