Volunteer Star Awards – Cannock Chase Awards

Volunteer Star Awards

Sadly in 2020 the Volunteer Star Awards events were cancelled due to Covid and government restrictions.

Rather than cancel for a second year the decision was taken to go virtual this year instead and the Support Staffordshire Volunteer Star Awards 2021 took place on Tuesday 15th June.  It’s really important to recognise the wonderful work that volunteers do in the community, and somehow it seems now this is more important than ever.

Watch the video below of the event, and take a look at some of this year’s winner for the Cannock Chase area!
