Thank you to some of our event partners for giving up their time yesterday to help judge the inaugural Proud to Bee a Volunteer, Volunteer Awards. With 78 nominations received from across nine volunteering categories and a wide range of charitable organisations, it was no easy task. However, it was humbling to read the amazing stories of selflessness, people giving their time and energy to help others within their community. We could only shortlist 27, but in the our eyes they were all winners!

We will now be contacting all nominees to let them know how they got on. Watch this space!

A huge thank you to Nisa and Madl, Eltherington, Transwaste,  Smailes Goldie and Active Humber for their invaluable input into the awards shortlisting process.
