Volunteer Awards 2023!
At Community Links Bromley, we know how important it is to say ‘thank you’ to all the volunteers across the borough, Often, it’s the only reward volunteers are looking for.
The Volunteer Awards is an annual event where we celebrate and recognise our wonderful volunteering community here in Bromley. This is our opportunity to thank Bromley volunteers for the incredible contribution they make to their organisations, and the wider community.
We held our Volunteer Awards Ceremony this year on Thursday 22nd June. We would like to thank Mayoress, Cllr Kim Botting for the honour of joining us on this special occasion. We would also like to thank the Soul Train Choir who performed uplifting songs for the audience, as well as all the wonderful volunteers, colleagues from Bromley charities, CLB Volunteers and Trustees.
Cllr Kim Botting, Mayoress of Bromley, and representatives around Bromley presented the awards winners with a certificate and glass award.
