Champion Points System for members

Did you know that our members have the chance to win 6 months free membership each year?

One member champion in each branch is the lucky winner of this prize… but how do they become a champion?

Dates-n-Mates Champion Points

The Dates-n-Mates Champion Points reward our members for a variety of ways they can participate in supporting the running of Dates-n-Mates, volunteering and developing their friendship and relationship skills.

As a member-led charity, it is important that members play an active role in everything we do and that they are rewarded for this. We have updated our champions points system so there are now more ways to gain points, even without directly volunteering with us.

At the end of each year, the member with the most points become our member champion of the year (one in each branch).

The champion points are open to all members, we encourage everyone to get involved and our teams are always on the lookout for opportunities to give out points.

What do previous winners say?

The reason I collect champions points is to make sure new members don’t get left out or excluded. I enjoy helping volunteers at events. Winning the Champion Points Trophy to me feels good - I really enjoy being not only a member of Dates-n-Mates but I love helping out and giving new ideas
I'm very proud to have won the champions award last year. I've been a member of Dates-n-Mates Renfrewshire since it launched and have enjoyed making new members feel welcome over the years.
It felt amazing to be the 2023 Champion Points winner in Aberdeen! I would recommend it to other members, there are lots of fun things people can help with… it feels great having the opportunity to support Dates-n-Mates!
It's been a pleasure helping other members at Dates-n-Mates events, it makes me feel a privilege to be part of the organisation. It was overwhelming getting the award but also amazing. Putting on great events with the staff, volunteers and members is what makes it.
It's just amazing to be recognised by Dates-n-Mates. Seeing all the smiles and laughter at the events make my heart melt.
Peter - "It felt good be rewarded for making people feel welcome and for helping members. I was pleased when support staff told me I was the first person to speak to new members when they first joined." ------------------ Angela - "It felt amazing to be the winner because I really wasn't expecting it."
