Berwickshire Housing Association’s Tenant Volunteers group has announced that it will be sponsoring next year’s Scottish Borders Saltire Inspire Awards Event for young people aged 12 to 25.
The group, which represents BHA tenants’ interests on rents and other issues, has donated £300 towards the organising of the event which will be held on March 20, 2015, in Galashiels.
The Inspire Awards are presented each year to young people in the Borders who have been outstandingly successful in a particular field or have overcome considerable obstacles to make a contribution to their local community.
The Award categories are: Volunteering, Sport, Music and the Arts, Community, Global Citizen and Inspirational. Anyone can nominate an individual or group, and nominations are open until December 31, 2014.
You can get more information on the BHA Tenant Volunteer’s website at www.tenantvolunteers.org.uk or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tenant Volunteers are always looking for new members. See their website for more details.
