Volunteers Award winners 2021
Volunteer litter pickers who kept Lee Valley Regional Park a welcoming haven during lockdown were honoured at Lee Valley Regional Park Authority’s 2021 Volunteers Party and Awards Ceremony.
This annual event, attended by more than 60 volunteers, staff and Board Members, recognises the invaluable contribution volunteers make to the park. This year’s ceremony, held at Lee Valley White Water Centre on Wednesday 20 October, acknowledged the challenges volunteers have faced and overcome during the past 18 months as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Shaun Dawson, Chief Executive at Lee Valley Regional Park Authority expressed his gratitude for the loyalty and dedication of Lee Valley’s volunteers throughout a tough year, remarking that “willingness to volunteer has not faltered”. Lee Valley’s volunteers have contributed an incredible 12,501 hours to the park’s open spaces and gardens during 2020, with their passion and commitment helping the Authority to retain nine prestigious Green Flag awards.
Shaun was joined by Paul Osborn, Chairman of Lee Valley Regional Park Authority to present this year’s Volunteer and Group of the Year.
