Adrian Evans Award

Posted on the 26th January 2017

The Adrian Evans Award recognises UK volunteers who have been inspired by their overseas volunteering experience with Lattitude to continue to make a structured contribution to benefit others, often through charitable projects in their home community or overseas.

The late Adrian Evans was Chairman of GAP (as Lattitude was formerly known) during the 1980s and 1990s, and was a huge influence on the development of the charity.  He was convinced of the long term benefits of youth volunteering for the young people themselves and for the communities they serve. The Memorial Fund was established by Adrian’s many friends and his widow, Ingela, and we are pleased to be able to provide annual Awards in his name.

Returned volunteers can put themselves forward for this award, be nominated by the host, by a member of staff at Lattitude or by another returned volunteer.

Awardees will receive a donation of up to £500 to further their charitable objectives or contribute to their ongoing projects.

To apply you will need to:

  1. Write c. 500 words about the charitable projects you have been involved in since returning from your placement, the objectives of those projects and how you have gone about raising funds to help further those objectives to date (if applicable). It is important to also write about how the £500 would be used to further the objectives if you were to receive the award.
  2. The nominations panel which is made up of Lattitude staff and members of the Alumni will review all applications and notify those who are short listed.
  3. Short listed applications will be sent to the Chair of the Adrian Evans Award fund (Ingela Evans) and the successful applicant will be notified. An invitation to a presentation event is also typical – previous winners have received their award from Lattitude’s Patron, HRH The Princess Royal.

Deadlines

Nominations / applications can be submitted at any time to Carol Flach cflach@lattitude.org.uk . The deadline for the March 2017 awards is 10th February 2017. Applications received thereafter will be considered in October 2017.
