Special recognition for seven of our volunteers
Seven Oakhaven volunteers have been recognised by the national charity, Room To Reward.
In June, Oakhaven Hospice held the Oakhaven Volunteer Achievement Awards to recognise the contribution of some of our volunteers who have gone above and beyond in their role. The awards were linked to the Oakhaven values of Compassion, Accountability, Respect and Empathy. There was an additional award for Individual Achievement.
The seven volunteers who received the awards were:
- Jane Chislett-Bruce and Helena Dickens - Award for Compassion
- Lyn Poulton - Award for Accountability
- Alison Proudman - Award for Respect
- Kirit Adalja - Award for Empathy
Keith Young and Peter Binding were presented with awards for Individual Achievement.
Andrew Ryde, Chief Executive of Oakhaven, said: "In addition to our Oakhaven Volunteer Achievement Awards, we also nominated all seven winners for another award, with Room To Reward - and I'm delighted to announce that all seven have been recognised. Congratulations and thank you for being hidden heroes for Oakhaven."
Room to Reward is a unique volunteer-recognition charity created to say ‘thank you’ to their hidden heroes – inspirational volunteers who give up their time to make a difference to those who need it most. Room to Reward partners with several hotels across the country to offer complimentary one or two-night stays to nominated volunteers.
Many congratulations to Jane, Helena, Lyn, Alison, Kirit, Keith and Peter - and to all our volunteers who make such a difference to Oakhaven.
Our volunteers are simply amazing: they give their time and energy to support Oakhaven, bringing a wealth of experience along with their commitment in wanting to help others and make a difference.
