Citizen of the Year03/11/16
THERE ARE just over eight weeks left to put forward someone whose good work qualifies them to be Dundee Citizen of the Year.
Each year Dundee City Council chooses a volunteer from the community to highlight their work and selfless efforts by naming them Citizen of the Year.
Lord Provost Bob Duncan said: “The title of Citizen of the Year is a tremendous accolade for anyone, not just because it is awarded to an individual that has provided outstanding local service, normally on a voluntary basis, but also because the nominations come directly from members of that very community.
“These are people who have benefited from, seen or been involved first hand with the person they are nominating and know for themselves the good work that the nominee has been doing, sometimes over many years.
“Dundee’s Citizen of the Year is selected for selfless service to a voluntary body or the community or whose activities bring distinction and quality to everyday life in the city.”
Any nominee must live in the Dundee City Council area.
Forms are available from www.dundeecity.gov.uk/supportservs/citizenyear or by telephone on 01382 434444.
Nominations close on December 31, with the winner announced early next year.
