Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards
The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards programme was launched on an all-Ireland basis in 2006. Since then the programme has honoured more than 2000 outstanding volunteers from over 300 schools across Ireland. It has elicited praise from educators, parents, elected officials and news media for communicating to young people the importance of volunteer service in their communities.
Among the prominent personalities who have participated in the programme are Bertie Ahern, John Hume, Caitriona Ruane, Mickey Harte, Declan Kidney, John Lonergan, David Coleman, Martin O’Neill, Brent Pope and Niall Breslin (Bressie) & Jordi Murphy.
If you have conducted a volunteer service activity within the past year and wish to be honoured for your contribution to your local community, you can find out more information as well as details on how to apply here: http://spirit.pramerica.ie/index.html
