We were lucky to be nominated for a Harrow’s Heroes Award. This was an evening organised by Harrow Council and the police to acknowledge and celebrate the work of volunteers in Harrow. There were about 450 people at the Leisure Centre for entertainment and refreshments. Every group or individual nominated was given a certificate but, more importantly, we were told about the winners of the awards. Some young people, for example, had spent years volunteer mentoring as well as dealing with their own lives, problems, exams and so on. There were also 10 nominees for the Gold Star award – over 20 years of volunteering! This recognition should energise your committee to carry on!
From the committee Margaret Bristow, Helen Shorter and Noor Mohamed were present.
