Gift of Time


The most valuable gift any person can give to another is their time

The Gift of Time Awards were created to acknowledge and thank our city’s volunteers for their selfless work in the community.

We hold our awards ceremony linking in with the United Nations’ International Volunteer Day, celebrated worldwide in December.

The awards are a way of thanking all volunteers for their significant contribution to our city.

2018 Nominations are now closed

Nominations closed on Monday 19 November 2018 and official invitations will be sent to nominated organisation representatives by the end of November 2018. No late nominations will be accepted.

The Gift of Time Ceremony will be held on Wednesday 19 December 2018. Please be aware that organisations may only send six (6) representatives to the ceremony on their behalf due to the capacity of the venue.
