So tonight we will be celebrating amazing local people who give their time to grow our local communities. Why not join the conversation on Twitter and let’s get local volunteers trending using the hashtag #dva18
These people I have nominated are very special and I would class them as my dear friends. I don’t know how the Emergency Department would have managed the last few years without them. They are all worth their weight in gold, all very loyal, supportive and caring of the department. They make our jobs so much easier and our patients truly appreciate them as well.
Last year we had lots of fabulous pictures from our annual celebration of volunteers and this year will hopefully be no exception. Why not sign up to follow the #dva18 blog now, so you get to see them as soon as they are published. Just click on the link in the right hand menu and you will get an email as soon as they are published 🙂 Just in case you can’t wait … why not have a browse of last year’s amazing photos
“X has helped me and my family so much and many other families who come to the group. X gives up her free time helping us and I know she volunteers for other groups too. If I hadn’t found this amazing group of people, I think I would have become a recluse!”
Every year the main and highly commended awardees for each category are invited along for tea with the Mayor and a tour of the Council Chamber. It’s a lovely afternoon and here are a few photographs from this year’s celebrations for #dva17 main and highly commended awardees.
Every year we produce a special souvenir programme for our volunteer awards and this year is no exception. There are quotes from the 80+ nomination forms we have received this year, info about our performers, sponsors etc.
