#BBFAStars is a volunteer engagement initiative that aims to recognise and reward the volunteers across the county that the grassroots game in Berks & Bucks depend upon. It uses their inspirational examples and personal stories to raise awareness of the game and encourage new faces to get involved.
It’s a way for us, as the County FA, to say ‘Thank You’. Thank you for all your time, effort and relentless dedication to the game across Berks & Bucks FA. It’s also a way for your peers, friends, fellow volunteers and local communities to recognise the people, often in the background, that help keep their clubs & leagues alive, week-in & week-out.
Who Shines all year round?
The roles we celebrate in #BBFAStars are not always in the spotlight, but the people that take them on often do so through a pure love of the game. #BBFAStars is not only about recognising their individual efforts but also about showing you a side of the game that you don’t often see.
The June #BBFAStars Award is for the Welfare Officer. The club welfare officer ensures that the club operates a safe, child friendly environment and promotes good practice in line with the club’s Child Protection Policy.
Other roles to be recognised throughout the year include, Chairperson, Secretary, Fixtures Secretary, Player Registrations Officer and more!

How Does It Work?
Each month we'll be taking to Twitter and asking for your nominations of those priceless volunteers that the grassroots game in our county depend on week-in, week-out.
The winner of each months category will have their story featured on our website and receive a £20 voucher of their choice from a range of popular online suppliers, such as; Amazon, The Restaurant Choice, Next, Argos, etc.
We'll encourage nominations on Twitter in the first week of the month via a pinned post promoting the nomination period and award category. At the end of week, we will collate all the nominations received and a panel will decide which four nominations will be put forward to a public poll/vote on Twitter. The vote will last for seven days and at the end of this period, the winner will be revealed in the vote results.
The winner will be contacted to confirm their prize and to feature their story on the Berks & Bucks FA website. We will also contact all nominees on Twitter to acknowledge their nomination and say thank you.
