"I am really excited to be part of this fantastic campaign to find the best British volunteers. We all know how well Brits celebrate individual and team endeavours, as so often demonstrated in sport. Britain Has Spirit has launched to try and re-evoke a sense of community pride, and to honour those who are tirelessly giving their time and effort to make communities and neighbourhoods better, all year round."

Why have you got involved with the Britain Has Spirit campaign?

I love the idea of celebrating Britain’s unsung volunteers. I think there is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes across Britain by people who aren’t always recognised or rewarded for their effort.

What makes Britain Has Spirit so special?

The aim of the campaign is not only to reward some of our hardest working volunteers with some great prizes but rally the rest of Britain and re-evoke our sense of community spirit and pride. By highlighting the best of the best, we hope to engage everyone else and inspire them to get stuck in.

What excites you most about being part of the search for Britain’s best volunteers?

I am so looking forward to hearing all the great stories and endeavours from all the 10 regions and meeting those involved.

Why are volunteers so important to local communities?

Communities are built and maintained by the people that belong to them. Without enthusiastic volunteers, elderly residents might not get that daily friendly cup of tea, communal areas may become unkempt, no-go zones and community facilities may suffer. Coming together and working for a better local environment is something we should celebrate, especially when so many of us don’t do enough.

Why do you think we should celebrate our volunteers?

On the whole I don’t think people volunteer solely for the praise, but it is important that the rest of us take the time to understand how much of a difference volunteers really make and highlight the many local causes that affect Britain.

Why do you think our sense of community has declined? What does community spirit mean to you?

I think it’s easy to get bogged down in day-to-day life and forget about the people and places that surround us. We are great at getting enthusiastic for big events such as the Olympics and Paralympics but often neglect the issues on our own doorstep. To me, community spirit is about being enthusiastic, proactive and involved in your area, working together for a greater cause with a real sense of pride.

What do you think makes a worthy winner of the Britain Has Spirit campaign?

Successful winners in both categories will be those who really showcase the difference they are making ‒ big or small. Whether it’s cleaning up a local park, or a setting up a neighbour-in-need scheme, we are sure that nominations will come in all shapes and sizes. With £25,000 up for grabs for each national winner, you could help make a huge difference just by nominating! So what’s stopping you?
