30 April 2024 3 min read

Citizens 4 Good recognises local people for good deeds, kindness and support that they provide to other members of the community.

Organised jointly by Sefton Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) and the Mayor of Sefton's Office, it will take place in Maghull on Monday 8th July.

50 for 50 campaign

With this being the year that the Borough of Sefton and Sefton CVS turn 50, the aim is to recognise 50 outstanding citizens at three Citizens 4 Good events. This will be part of Sefton 4 Good’s 50 for 50 campaign, which aims to bring together local communities through community-centric events across the borough, encouraging participation in volunteering opportunities.

The first Citizens 4 Good event of the year was held on 7th March at Bootle Town Hall, where Mayor of Sefton, Councillor June Burns, presented certificates and expressed gratitude to 13 individuals, groups and organisations for their efforts.

Event organiser Lauren Jones said: “With the borough of Sefton and Sefton CVS turning 50 this year we wanted to celebrate the unsung heroes in the area."

“To be able to reach our target of 50, we need to hear from you!

"Is there someone in your locality that makes a big difference to the community or group you attend? Is there a neighbour that goes above and beyond to help others? Do you know someone who lives in Sefton that has raised outstanding amounts of money for charity or had a positive impact on a cause that goes beyond our borough's borders?

“If so then nominate them for a Citizen 4 Good award.”

Attended by the Mayor

July’s event will be attended by the Mayor of Sefton, Councillor June Burns who will present nominees with a certificate of thanks and recognition.

Previous recipients include a group from Formby who’ve driven humanitarian aid to Ukraine, refugees who have contributed positively to the Sefton community, Scout and Girlguiding leaders and the founders of a community running group.
