Vol Awards 015

Individual Recognition

This year’s event was held on Thursday 11th June 2015, and for the first time we partnered with Lancaster City Council to host a joint Volunteer Achievement Awards and Lancaster Sports Awards.  The event was held at Salt Ayre Sports Centre in Lancaster. We had over 70 nominations representing over 700 local volunteers with  more than 50 voluntary sector groups  represented on the night. Presentations were made by our Deputy Mayor, Councillor Caroline Jackson.

Trustee of the Year was awarded to Sian Johnson from the Duke’s Theatre; Young Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Emma Pearson from Unique Kidz and Co; and Volunteer of the Year was awarded to Lee Wilson from Furniture Matters. See Award Photos for a copy of your organisation’s picture.
