Many congratulations to two of our volunteers, Dianne Foyle and Pam Brown, who were highly commended in the Outstanding Contribution category at the fifth Central Bedfordshire Cheering Volunteering awards held at the Grove Theatre in Dunstable on 4 June.
The awards, held during national Volunteers Week, acknowledge the tremendous contribution volunteers and voluntary organisations across Central Bedfordshire make to help others in their community.
Dianne, who has volunteered at the L&D for the past 12 years, supports the Neonatal Unit, Macmillan Unit and helps feed patients on Ward 23.
Pam has volunteered since 2001 in the Cardiac Centre but is also an incredible fundraiser and governor, supporting many appeals and initiatives across the hospital.
Congratulations too to volunteer Stephen Foley who was also nominated for an award.
Central Bedfordshire Council’s chairman, Councillor Cllr Brian Saunders, said: “What an amazing and inspirational event to be part of. I would like to congratulate not only the award winners and those who were highly commended in each category, but all of the other nominees and everyone who had a part to play in the evening. Volunteers are glue that holds communities together, so it was very fitting to celebrate their achievements during national Volunteers’ Week.”
