Sponsoring Charity Staff Foundation 2014
Charity Staff and Volunteers Awards – Charity Staff Foundation
We were delighted to sponsor the Charity Staff and Volunteers Awards, run by the Charity Staff Foundation. There were more than 700 amazing nominations for the 20 categories of awards. The award for the Volunteer Coordinator of the Year award 2014 was presented by Simon Hickman, our Managing Director.
The finalists were Sue from the Canal Rivers Trust, Catherine from P3 Social Inclusion Charity and Tricia from Time To Change. All three have made outstanding achievements for their charities.
Sue Blosksidge of the Canal and River Trust. Sue became a finalist for her unwavering support of the charity’s volunteers and involving them in the work of the trust. She ensures that all the volunteer lock keepers in her region are fully trained, supported and apprised of changes. Her nominator advises that she definitely does deserve recognition because the people she supports really appreciate and value all that she does.
Catherine Moss of P3 Social Inclusion Charity. Catherine has volunteered for P3 at the Rugby Portobello Trust site in London since 1994. She manages all of the volunteers in the region; currently standing at 120 people. She works tirelessly seven days a week and is contactable almost 24 hours a day when other volunteers or clients need her. The charity simply could not be without Catherine.
Tricia Thorpe of Time to Change. Tricia is the volunteer coordinator of Time to Change Leeds and manages a team of 16 volunteers, all of whom have live experience of mental health difficulties. Her nominator said that she feels privileged to have worked with her and she truly impacts and lives positively.
The winner on the night was Catherine Moss of P3 Inclusion Charity.
The evening, which was hosted at the RBS building in London, was truly inspirational and made us all appreciate the very valuable, dedicated and selfless work that charity staff and volunteers put in – this truly defines the sector.
