Volunteer Awards 2017

Vol Awards 17 Graphic

We've announced our 2017 Award Winners!

Read about our InspiringRespectSupportive, Creative, Boldest, Young and Group Award nominees.

This year, like every year, we’re coming together to celebrate volunteers from across the charity, who make what we do possible. Because of them we’re able to support more people affected by cancer and fund more vital research.

Some of do it every day, some do it once a week or once a month. Some do it on weekends, some do it at events and some do it from home. Some do it in our shops, some do it with work, and some of you even do it online!

The award categories match Tenovus Cancer Care’s values, the things that make us who we are - we also have an award for groups and an award for young people. Read a bit more about the different award categories below.
