Organised by the Cardiff Third Sector Council (C3SC), the Cardiff Volunteer Awards was their annual award ceremony celebrating volunteering in Cardiff. Held in Cardiff on Wednesday 15 November, the ceremony recognised the many contributions and achievements of volunteers, community groups and organisations for their hard work and for going above and beyond to support everyone in our communities.
Kicking off the evening was the fantastic Ebed Akotia who hosted the night’s event with incredible enthusiasm and respect for all the nominees and winners. There were a number of award categories this year including:
- Volunteer of the Year (Over 25 years)
- Young Volunteer of the Year (25 years and under)
- Volunteer Group of the Year
- Volunteer Coordinator of the Year
- Trustee of the Year
- Outstanding Community
- Inclusive Business of the Year
- VW Most Active Volunteer
- VW Most Active Provider
- Youth Led Grant Project of the Year
Whether they were a nominee or a winner, their contributions were expressly thanked. The commitment and selflessness that all the volunteers have all demonstrated despite a very difficult year was applauded, and it was a privilege to see them get the recognition they wholly deserve.
Being based in Cardiff, WCIA works with many volunteers, community groups and organisations within the city, so we were very honoured to be present and to have the opportunity to thank these individuals for all their incredible support and help acknowledge the impact they have made to their communities.
WCIA over the years has been fortunate enough to have individuals volunteer with us in all areas of our work, making a difference to our communications, heritage, peace and climate programmes. Not only this but we been able to send hundreds of individuals from Wales to volunteer abroad, helping and learning from many other communities all around the world.
