What a spectacular night at Theatre at the Mill to celebrate the Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council 'Spirit of Volunteering Awards'!!!

We managed to win 2 categories 'Covid 19 Community Impact Award' for our Good Morning Antrim, Volunteers and 'Newcomer to Volunteering Award' for our Leanne.

Joe was nominated for the 'Over 25 Years' Service Award and was also very pleased to also receive formal recognition.

For us, awards for volunteering are held in the upmost esteem!! Without volunteering, many services across the borough could not exist or meet service needs. We are proud it was our turn to be recognised, but also honour and respect the involvement of all volunteers, across the board. Well done to everyone!!!

“The broadest, and maybe the most meaningful definition of volunteering: Doing more than you have to because you want to, in a cause you consider good" – Ivan Scheier
