The Outstanding Contribution Award - The Nicola Park Award

For the last nine years VAMT has made a special award which marks an outstanding contribution to volunteering. The Outstanding Contribution Award is for an individual who has consistently volunteered his or her time over many years. It is for the volunteer who regularly puts in a lot of hours and can be relied upon to help out, often at short notice, but always cheerfully.

This award is dedicated to the memory of our colleague Nicola Park, who, as many of you will know, passed away in September 2006. Nicola was a great inspiration to many and was very passionate about volunteering and the voluntary sector. VAMT staff and Board members score each application for the Outstanding Contribution to Volunteering Award, ensuring that this truly is a VAMT award.

In a break from tradition for 2015, the award will be presented at VAMT's Annual General Meeting to be held at the Bessemer Hotel, on 12 November 2015.
