dlr Celebration of Volunteerism 2017
Intro Text 

A dlr Celebration of Volunteerism 2017 was hosted by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council on Thursday 7th December 2017, in recognition of those who selflessly volunteer their time to help their community, group or club. The event celebrated the spirit of volunteerism that is demonstrated all year round by individuals who give their time to improve the quality of life for citizens in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County. The event also marked the 10th Birthday of the dlr Volunteer Centre and the launch of the dlr Volunteer Corp, which is a joint initiative of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the dlr Volunteer Centre.

Over 50 individuals were nominated by their community for their work with community based organisations across the following categories: Environment, Arts & Culture, Children & Young People, Community, Older Persons, Safety & Emergency Services, Health & Disability, Social Inclusion, Sports & Recreation ,  Outstanding Group Award and Cathaoirleach’s Award for Long Service

Awards made across the Categories and the event provided an opportunity both to recognize and celebrate the selfless contributions of dlr’s volunteers.
