If you’ve been keeping up with our recent news, you’ll be aware that every year in Midlothian we run a volunteer awards ceremony during Volunteers’ Week from the 1-7th June. The ceremony is an opportunity for us to say a huge thank you to all of Midlothian’s volunteers. However, we also need to say thanks to another important contributor – the people that help to make the awards possible in the first place.
We are grateful to have received sponsorship for seven of this year’s award categories from local organisations. Without the input of our sponsors, the Midlothian Volunteer Awards would be a much less exciting affair! As the circumstances do not permit us to offer our thanks in person, we want to show our appreciation digitally, to let others know that our sponsors really are amazing and very generous.
The award categories and sponsors are listed below.
Outstanding New volunteer – Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
Befriender or Mentor of the Year – Police Scotland
Active Volunteering Award – EDF
Health and Wellbeing Award – Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership
Dedicated Service to Volunteering – Esk Valley Rotary Club
Covid-19 Community Award – Midlothian Council
