Nominations are being sought for youth volunteering awards.

The vInspired National Awards are hosted by the charity of the same name.

The youth volunteering charity celebrates the efforts of youngsters around the country who have made a difference to their communities.

Previous winners include Joanna Mayes of Biggleswade, who won the ‘bringing communities together’ category in last year’s awards.

Joanna was recognised for her work in coaching youth football teams and running a support group for young girls who can talk through their problems.

She said: “The Olympics have opened people’s eyes to how much volunteers can achieve. I want to make sure that other volunteers get the same recognition.”
