It’s the season of nominations, so why add your vote in MS Ireland’s MS Person of the Year, MS Carer/Helper of the Year or MS Volunteer of the Year for the National Annual Awards 2014?
As you already know, I applaud Multiple Sclerosis Ireland for the hard work they put into helping those with MS, and fight for those who care for them. The society has received many mentions in my blog here, and for good reason. From the day of my diagnosis, now 9 year ago, I have had the best people listening to my initial denial to now being supported in raising my voice for other people with MS today.
Many people have had the chance of being part of a very vibrant volunteer network, or have been helped by them. For those volunteers, carers, helpers or a person with MS, the National Annual Awards have been created: “Our annual National Awards recognise those who through their dedication and selflessness play a significant role in the lives of others and the progress of the Society.”
So, if you’re a member of a Branch, an individual member or staff, and you know a member who you feel deserve recognition, please nominate your special person in one of the three categories:
The closing date for nominations is Friday, August 1st 2014.
For more details about the awards, contact Alice McKeon on firstname.lastname@example.org or on (01) 6781608 or drop in to your local Regional Office to pick up a form.
The 2014 awards will be presented at the Annual General Meeting in September.
