Glyn is a Diamond Champion!

Publish Date: 30/10/2012

Supported by Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall Diamond Champions recognises the contribution that people over the age of 60 make through volunteering.

In total 4,573 people were nominated as Diamond Champions, representing 249 charities. LGF trustee Glyn was chosen out of 800 nominations and attended a ceremony in York Guildhall where he was presented with a specially designed Diamond Champions pin. He also received a certificate signed by Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Claire Baldwin Volunteer Manager nominated Glyn and comments “Glyn was an obvious nomination for us, not just because of the tremendous contributions he’s made to us for the last 15 years a trustee but also because of all the other volunteering he does.  Glyn is so keen to make a difference to his local community through contributing his time and skills to a range of different charitable projects.  He's involved with his local church as the Treasurer of the Fundraising Committee and providing music for Sunday Services, as well as being the Treasurer of the Stockport Talking Newspaper.

“At the age of nearly 70 years, Glyn is an absolute inspiration to the staff and trustees at the LGF for all the activities he is involved with, and for his passion and enthusiasm for making a difference.  He is a real supporter for the volunteering programme and will go out of his way to provide really positive and supportive feedback to help champion volunteering to other people.”

Congratulations and well done Glyn from everyone at The LGF!
