As the County Voluntary Council for Ceredigion, CAVO supports community and voluntary action across the County so promoting volunteering and supporting volunteers is a key pillar of their work. The Awards are held to recognise the support volunteers provide and appreciate the value that volunteering offers to individuals and communities after an “exceptionally difficult year”.
Chief Executive of CAVO, Hazel Lloyd Lubran said, “Volunteers make such a vital difference to the lives of individuals and the vibrancy of our communities across Ceredigion and the importance of people giving their time for the benefit of others has never been more prominent.”
“It’s a privilege for the CAVO Team to work with volunteers every day, and the Volunteer Awards gives us the chance to say DIOLCH to volunteers that give their time to support others and make such a vital difference in our communities.”
“We encourage anyone who knows a volunteer who has carried out exceptional work in their community to nominate them for these prestigious awards.”
