The celebration of volunteering was attended by volunteers and guests from around the county and was organised by Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations (PAVO).
The awards recognising individual and group contributions to volunteering were presented by The Hon. Dame Shan Legge-Bourke DCVO C.St J Lord Lieutenant of Powys.
The club would like to congratulate Alan on receiving his Volunteer of the Year Award it is richly deserved. Alan was recognised for his 25 years of voluntary work at Newtown Rugby Club, right across the board from his work with the junior section, his involvement on the committee and his unseen work of securing essential grant aid to support the financial demands of running a club with over 200 hundred junior and senior players.
Carl Cooper, Chief Executive Officer of Powys Association of Voluntary Organisations said:
“The contribution of volunteers in Powys is as impressive as it is inspiring. The awards ceremony enabled us to shine a small spotlight on the tip of the volunteering iceberg in Powys. Without the continuous work undertaken by volunteers, essential services would not be provided, civil society would be diminished and communities would be impoverished. We all owe a great debt of gratitude to volunteers for their generous, selfless and crucial service.”
Congratulations Alan and thank you from all of us at Newtown Rugby Club
