Age Cymru is urging campaigners aged 60 and over across Wales to put their names forward for a special award.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation ‘Take Action’ Award recognises the achievements of campaigners aged 60 and over.
Rhea Stevens, Age Cymru’s Campaigns Coordinator says:
“4.9 million people aged 65 and over take part in volunteering or civil engagement across the UK and many of them are involved with campaigning — championing change and improving the lives of others.
“The Take Action Award - which is sponsored by our sister charity, Age UK, recognises the tireless and often unsung work carried out by so many older campaigners.
“Age Cymru is encouraging people across Wales to send in nominations for people involved in campaigning for change, on global issues such as climate change to very local issues such as keeping your library open.
“We hope the winners will benefit from the great training and support offered by the Sheila McKechnie Foundation.”
Sheila McKechnie Foundation awards provide winners with a range of support that will help them polish and sharpen their skills, including:
