The LGF Volunteer Awards 2014
Publish Date: 10/06/2014
The Lesbian & Gay Foundation’s (The LGF) annual Volunteer Awards ceremony was held during National Volunteer’s Week and celebrated the achievements of all our fabulous volunteers.
The awards are an opportunity to celebrate the amazing contributions made by our volunteers, every single day of the year. The sheer number of people involved in supporting our communities demonstrates that without them, we wouldn’t be able to provide our much needed services.
Every LGF volunteer has contributed towards an overall total of 8,000 volunteering hours this year. This makes an incredible difference to how many people we can reach with our services and campaigns. Here are The LGF Volunteer Award winners:
