Some of Cork city’s finest community volunteers and groups will be honoured tonight at the annual Lord Mayor’s Community and Voluntary Awards night.

Each year six people receive Lord Mayor’s Civic Awards in recognition of their efforts to improve the lot of the community, while six groups receive Lord Mayor’s Community and Voluntary Awards in recognition of the services they provide in the community.

The Community & Voluntary Awards, presented by Cork City Council and sponsored by The Echo, are in their 15th year and recognise the significant contribution of the community and voluntary sector to the people of Cork City. 

The different categories represent the broad and diverse range of community work in the city. 

The winners will be announced on the night from 16 shortlisted groups in five categories.
