Each year at our annual Dudley Volunteer Awards, one of the amazing volunteers who has been nominated is chosen to receive the prestigious Gordon Lindsay Award for Long Service. Recipients are people who’ve made a lifetime commitment to volunteering.
The volunteers who are nominated and recognised for this award, all have one very special thing in common – they have all volunteered for at least 25 years.
This award is made in memory of Dudley CVS’s late Chairman, Gordon Lindsay, who’d made a lifetime commitment to volunteering including scouting, setting up and running a social club for people with disabilities, and many other roles.
Why not think if you know a volunteer who’s given a lifelong commitment to volunteering?
Last year’s recipient was another amazing individual with a real passion to make a difference and they’ve been doing it for years. Dave Brownhill was our recipient, so why not read about him here?
