AGM and volunteer awards at HOPS 2


The 2014 AGM and Volunteer Awards were held on the 12th November, with 38 volunteers, parents, invited guests and trustees in attendance.

The awards are HOPS way of recognising the hard work our volunteers do throughout the summer. This year a total of 2476 hours were contributed.

This year HOPS presented a new award called the Sue Woolmer Award, in memory of a very dear member of the team who sadly passed away in 2014. The Sue Woolmer Award is given to a volunteer who has overcome personal adversity or difficulties. We were pleased that Adam Woolmer, Sue’s son, and Julie Copping, Sue’s sister, were able to present this new award to Bethany Barratt.

The Bett Barnard Shield for most promising new volunteer went to Sophie Goddard, and the award for the most improved returning volunteer was presented to Ellie Dickinson.

Both Bethany Alliston and Paige Turbidy were given Special Recognition Awards for their outstanding contribution during the summer of 2014.

The Chair thanked the volunteers for their continued hard work, and all volunteers in attendance were presented with recognition certificates.
