The Mansfield Volunteer Awards take place every year during Volunteer's Week at the beginning of June.
This is a celebratory evening that provides an opportunity to say thank you to all the volunteers across Mansfield and district who work tirelessly throughout the year to make a difference to their communities.
The ceremony is organised every year by a steering group of tenants, residents and volunteers, and supported by officers from Mansfield District Council, Mansfield CVS and Nottinghamshire County Council.
On the evening, awards will be given out to each of the winners from the seven categories:
Mansfield Volunteer Awards
I started working at Mansfield CVS aged just 18, initially as an admin apprentice studying a level 2 NVQ and later progressing to doing a “Higher” apprenticeship (NVQ level 3). It was my first job and when I began working here I had very low self-confidence and no practical work experience at all! Due to the nature of the work, helping other charities in the local area, and the lovely people I work with, I soon discovered I really enjoy working in the charity sector and would be very happy to have a career in it – something I had never considered prior to joining MCVS.
