National deafblind charity, Sense, has opened nominations for its annual awards, inviting anyone with a connection to Sense or the deafblind community to put forward their choice for who has excelled in seven different categories, including ‘young deafblind person of the year’, ‘volunteer of the year’ and ‘fundraiser of the year’.
The Sense Awards, which celebrate the achievements of deafblind people and those that support them, will be held at the end of the year and is currently appealing for people to submit their nominations for the extraordinary people they know in the deafblind community.
There are a range of categories in this year’s awards, with honours celebrating the remarkable determination shown by people who live with deafblindness and those with complex needs, as well as the dedication of the thousands of volunteers, fundraisers and campaigners who help Sense continue their work supporting those with sensory impairments.
Gill Morbey, Chief Executive at Sense, said:
“We’re delighted to have opened nominations for our annual Sense Awards.
Every day, we hear about the remarkable achievements of people with sensory impairments, as well as the dedicated volunteers, fundraisers and carers that support them. The Sense Awards is our way of recognising the incredible achievements of these important individuals.”
