Following the success of our inaugural award in 2023, Rotary in Godalming will be running their Young Citizen Award again in 2024.

Our late member Malcolm Keene worked tirelessly inspiring young people in Godalming. So, in his memory, the Rotary Clubs in Godalming wish to reward those young people who have made outstanding contributions to our local community and deserve recognition.

This may be as a carer, a fundraiser for good causes, involvement with voluntary organisations or other similar tasks that a young person has, or group of young people have, done to benefit the community that often has not been recognised.

If you know a young person, or a group of young people, aged between 10-18, who is/are doing good things within the community, then please nominate them for our award.

The nomination form is available on the Godalming Woolsack Rotary website or by email to

A cash prize together with a commemorative plaque will be awarded to the individual or the group that the Rotary judging panel consider to be the most deserving. All nominees will receive a certificate recognising their nomination.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 12th April 2024 with an award evening planned for Friday 17th May 2024 at the Wilfrid Noyce Centre, Godalming.
