There are six categories for our Civic Champion Awards:
Arts and Culture
Enhancing and increasing participation in arts, including music and creative leisure activities.
Achieving outstanding results by initiating, organising and/or delivering a community programme or event which has benefitted the town or a community.
Improving and enhancing development opportunities for children and young people.
Heritage and Environment
Improving or revitalising the environment, culture and heritage.
Health and Wellbeing
Providing services that enhance the health and wellbeing of people in the town. For example, developing sport and leisure opportunities or enhancing and increasing participation in physical sport, leisure activity or recreational pursuits.
NOTE: This award is intended for those involved in ‘running’ the sport/leisure activity, e.g., coaching/administration, etc as opposed to those who participate in these activities.
Community Champion Award
A special achievement award celebrating an individual or individuals for their outstanding contribution and dedication to Ramsgate over their lifetime or significant period. This person will have gone above and beyond, over many years, demonstrating a long-term voluntary commitment to the town and the wider community.
In special circumstances, the Society may make a lifetime award to a person who lives outside the town’s boundaries, providing the deserving voluntary service concerned has been wholly or predominantly carried out for the benefit of Ramsgate and its people.
