Representing the team to collect their award were Coaches Caroline and Isla and volunteer Lucy (pictured below). The Awards ceremony, organised by the Volunteer Centre East Lothian , is ‘A Celebration of Kindness and Dedication’, and is ‘…a celebration of the incredible dedication and effort put forth by volunteers in East Lothian.’ It’s part of ‘a larger, national initiative that spans across Scotland, where we take a moment to appreciate the kindness and generosity of our fellow citizens. It’s a wonderful opportunity to shine a spotlight on the remarkable volunteering projects that are making a difference in East Lothian.’


Saturday Coach Caroline put forward her team as she was so proud of their commitment and dedication to their participants. The impact of this is clear in the video submitted as part of the application, where participant Elliot explains what his Saturday session volunteers mean to him, 
Huge Congratulations to our Saturday volunteers!
