Gale Coates won the Adult Volunteer of the Year Award sponsored by ourselves and received her prize from our Chairman Trevor Burrows on Wednesday 14 February at the ‘Loving our Volunteers event’ in Kelso.
The award is for a volunteer, between the ages of 24 and 60, who loves what they are doing, shows commitment and enthusiasm for their role, and who may have made a significant contribution to their community, improved their wellbeing and personal development or gained new skills which have led to employment.
Ms Coates was nominated by Fiona White, Splash Project, Eyemouth, because:
“She represents all that is good for Eyemouth. She gives every spare minute she has to volunteering for her community, often using here holidays from her job and her Fire Service commitment to do this – she is a real asset to the town!”
We would like to congratulate Gale on her wonderful achievement.
