Seven awards were given to acknowledge those who have given their time voluntarily, paid workers who have gone above and beyond within the voluntary sector and businesses who have given unpaid support to the voluntary sector within the Mansfield District.
The awards took place at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex with guests from Mansfield District Council, Notts County Council and many partner organisations.
And the winners are:
Andrew Wallace Memorial Award - Bob Wyatt (presented by Pete Sutcliffe – Mansfield Awards Committee)
Vaughan Thomas Memorial Award -The Social & Fund Raising Group - Mansfield Woodhouse Community Development Group Award (presented by Cllr. Joyce Bosnjak, NCC)
Young Persons Award - Oliver Chater (presented by Scarlett Sykes, Youth Mayor)
Voluntary Sector Paid Worker - Leanne McGachan, NIDAS (presented by Veronica Cooper, Chair MCVS Board)
Business in the Community Award - PPX Metal Management Limited (presented by John Bilzon, President Mansfield Rotary Club)
Margaret Wilson Award - Friends of the Oaklands (presented by Cllr Andy Burgin & Steve Lunn, Chair of the Oaklands)
Outstanding Volunteer Award - Ann Sewell (presented by Andy Abrahams, Executive Mayor)
Without the assistance of Mansfield CVS, we would have struggled to remain in existence. The help and training we have received, coupled with the ongoing assistance of Ian and Trish has helped us to maintain our service.
I am hoping for a continued close working partnership in the future, resulting in benefit to both of our organisations.
