The closing date for nominations for next years ‘Soldiering on Awards’ is fast approaching. The cut of date for nominations is the 15th November 2013 so if you move quickly there is still time to put your suggestions forward.
If you have someone that you would like to thank (a team or an individual), and who would be happy to receive national recognition on behalf of your charity, please let us know as soon as possible.
If your nomination is successful you will receive national acknowledgment for recognising your supporters, and your charity will receive a proportion of the funds raised by SOTLT over the following year.
The deadline to submit your nominations is 12:00hrs Friday 15th November 2013.
A note of warning – move fast because to be able to manage the nominations received, the Trust can only accept the first 80 nominations.
They have already received a considerable number so we encourage you to submit yours as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
Suggested 2014 Award categories
As Air Vice-Marshal Tony Stables CBE (COBSEO Chairman) announced at the closing address at this year’s COBSEO symposium, “All those in the military charity sector should use the ‘Soldiering On Awards’ to thank the people who support our Armed Forces Community.”
So we are asking you to help us thank your incredible supporters!
