The ACE Awards have arrived, a Brand new awards ceremony to both highlight and celebrate the mighty work of Volunteers in the Arklow area. Arklow Community Excellence (ACE) Awards is more than just an awards ceremony, it’s a movement. A movement to join the dots and bring communities together, sharing research, experience and support for the greater good. A movement that celebrates the trojan work put in by volunteers in Arklow.
Tammy Byrne and Cleo Russell are the dynamic duo behind the awards which will take place on November 18th at the Arklow Bay Hotel.
There will be a community Fair from 5-7 pm on the night which will allow local community groups come together to meet each other and share with the public the work they do and the support they can offer.
Following the community fair, Arklows charity shops have come together to treat the audience to a sustainable charity show made up of wonderful donations received into the stores and curated by the charity shop volunteers themselves.
As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, the Awards Ceremony itself kicks off at 8pm, followed by music and a few shapes on the dancefloor late into the night.
