Volunteer awards

Volunteer awards

Awards are presented at our AGM where we recognise outstanding individual and group contributions and present lifetime achievement awards. 

The volunteers awards recognise and celebrate all the hard work our volunteers across the three counties do throughout the year, every year, in all weathers, giving so generously of their time and skills.

“Without the dedication and commitment shown by all the people we are celebrating today, this Wildlife Trust would not be able to meet our vision of an environment rich in wildlife, valued by all.”
