Citizen of the Year 202229/10/21
The search has begun for Dundee’s Citizen of the Year.
Each year we choose someone, usually a volunteer, from the community to highlight their work and selfless efforts by naming them Citizen of the Year.
This is an opportunity to recognise someone who has gone the extra mile to support their community.
Last year’s Citizen of the Year was Samantha Bruce of Food for Thought in Charleston and Lochee Community Larders, who continued to carry out the role for two years, throughout the pandemic.
Lord Provost Ian Borthwick said: “For years now we have been celebrating the city’s outstanding individuals who humbly carry out work benefiting the community.
“The title of Citizen of the Year is a special one because it is awarded to someone who, normally on a voluntary basis, provides outstanding service to the community.
“In choosing Dundee’s Citizen of the Year we look in particular for selfless service to a voluntary body or the community or someone whose service activities bring distinction and quality to everyday life in Dundee.
“The past year has been a year like no other and it has been inspiring to see how individuals have gone above and beyond to support those around them.
“I have no doubt that we will get a high calibre of nominees, which will truly reflect the spirit of Dundee.”
If you feel anyone is worthy of nomination then please complete a nomination form and return it no later than 31st December 2021.
