Inspire Volunteer Awards Finalists 2019!
This week Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise (SVE), are very excited to announce the finalists for this year’s Inspire Volunteering Awards after the judging panel met to deliberate who would make this year’s shortlist.
The judging panel, consisting of Gerry Davis, Solicitors for Older People Scotland, Fiona Jamieson, The Barracks Conference Centre, Alex Linkston, NHS Forth Valley, chaired by Natalie Masterson SVE found this year a particular tough year after the calibre of nominations was incredibly high.
'We had a particularly high calibre of nominations this year, making it very difficult for our judging panel to decide. However, we are very pleased with all our finalists who demonstrated the positive impact of volunteering, not just on the organisation, but on the volunteers themselves. It is a pleasure to inform our finalists of their success, and we wish them all luck for the ceremony in September'
