To mark a decade of recognising the importance of volunteering, this year The Nationwide Building Society has extended their awards scheme to encompass the theme of heritage. Heritage has many faces, from village museums to biodiversity programmes, from local cultural traditions to archaeological digs. All of these facets of heritage rely heavily upon volunteer support, protecting and celebrating the rich history and diversity of our islands.
The Nationwide Building Society is delighted to welcome the Heritage Lottery Fund as their expert partners in the new awards scheme for 2008 – The Nationwide Community & Heritage Awards.
