The very special guest was revealed to be London 2012 Paralympian, Sophie Christiansen MBE. Sophie, a local Equestrian rider, won an incredible three gold medals at this year’s Paralympics and it was a pleasure for her to take part in acknowledging the work of local volunteers and the difference they make within their communities in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. She looked delighted at her involvement and added further inspiration to the mood of the evening. All the nominees were able to have a picture with the medal winner and of course see the gold medals for themselves, with a lucky few even holding one!
This year there was a magnificent 55 nominations with six awards on offer. Vivienne Davies was announced as the Overall Volunteer of the Year 2012 for her work as Chair of SportsAble, a charity based in Maidenhead, dedicated to the promotion of awareness of disability through sport and recreational activity and the integration of disabled and able-bodied people. The ‘Under 25’ Group Trophy was presented to Tameena Hussain while Andy Small won the ‘25-59’ Trophy, and Sandy Ashton won the ‘60 and over’ category. SportsAble Section Leaders were the ‘Team Shield’ winners whilst Vicki Witt picked up the ‘Special Recognition Shield’.
Radian has a proud tradition of recognising the work of volunteers and has sponsored the important event since 2000. Diana MacLean, Head of Region West, was in attendance to represent the Radian Group and she commented on the evening "It was wonderful to see so many nominees and is humbling to hear about the good work that all the volunteers do for their communities".
On behalf of everyone at Radian we would like say a huge congratulations to all the award winners and nominees whilst also thanking every volunteer for all their hard work and the role they play in their community!
A very special guest will be involved in acknowledging the work of local volunteers and the difference they have made within their communities in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. How appropriate that Windsor and Maidenhead Volunteer Centre (WMVC) are announcing their winners of their "Volunteer of the Year 2012 Awards" at the Olympic rowing venue, Eton Dorney. A venue which has already seen plenty of celebration in the recent weeks!
Radian acknowledge the important work that volunteers do in all the communities we serve and we have been proud sponsors of this important event since 2000.
On Wednesday 23 May a group of residents from Sawyers Close in Windsor gathered with community members and staff of Radian, the housing and care provider, to unveil a very special wall mural.
