The Etheldreda Medal Award - Nominations Open


Every other year, the Bishop of Ely awards The Etheldreda Medal to people across the Diocese whose service to the community (which might be as ‘local’ as their extended family but could be as extensive as a national or international concern) is both ‘generous’ and ‘outstanding’.

Bishop stephen adds; "I am looking for exceptional people whose good works haven’t yet been recognised; those who might (in partnership with others) come close to being nominated for a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

For many people this will be about the duration and persistence of their good works, for others it may relate to a short but extraordinary act of kindness or course of conduct".

Nominations for the 2022 awards need to be submitted by 26 May 2022. These will then be reviewed by a panel of volunteers appointed by me to identify suitable recipients. Most of the awards will be presented publicly at a special service at Ely Cathedral on 15 October 2022.

We hope you will help  with this project, either by making a nomination yourself, or by encouraging others to do so.

Nomination form and further details

  • The Nomination Form (and details of the procedure and some fictional examples of the kind of people to whom I wish to make the award) is available on our website here.
