Swale Volunteer Awards 2016 – Your Vote Counts!

Written by on 12 January 2016

Swale Borough Council are recognising the hard work of those special individuals within the Borough of Swale who give their time to put something back in to their community.

Last year BRFM was nominated and awarded Silver Certificate for Volunteer Team of the Year.   Supporters of BRFM have nominated the station again this year:

Fund raising award (team or individual, focusing on the method used rather than the amount raised)  Our very own DCD team, Elwood and Peter have been nominated for their fundraising last year during Comic Relief.  They stayed awake for 48 hours straight and continued broadcasting the whole time.  Many members of the community came along to support them and provide refreshments and I suspect to make sure they didn’t fall asleep.  Well Done Guys.  We must do it again.

You still have a chance to Nominate from the below categories.  Your vote counts but remember nominations close This Friday 15th January.  You can follow the link below to cast your nomination.


  • Young Volunteer of the Year (18 years or under)
