DONCASTER CVS REWARDS COMMUNITY & VOLUNTARY STARS

Over 200 people attend AGM and awards event at the Keepmoat

Doncaster CVS has celebrated its 71st anniversary and recognised the stars on the town’s voluntary and community sector with its second annual awards event at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Over 200 people from across South Yorkshire attended the organisation’s AGM and Community & Voluntary Sector Awards event sponsored by accountants, Smith Craven and media partners, Sine FM and the Doncaster Free Press. 

Explains Norma Wardman, director of Doncaster CVS: “We’ve been at the core of Doncaster’s thriving community and voluntary sector for 71 years and it was fantastic to welcome a record number of people to our AGM and Awards today.

“Our second Community & Voluntary Sector Awards have brought together so many of Doncaster’s community groups, social enterprises and volunteers to celebrate their incredible achievements. We received 74 nominations this year and every single one deserved an award, the judges had a very tough job this year selecting the winners!”
