I’m pleased to announce that Linda Baddeley, our District Administrator, has been announced as the winner of Support Staffordshire, Newcastle-under-Lyme Volunteer of the Year Award 2018. This was decided by on line voting, which saw Linda as one of 4 finalists that were selected from over 40 nominations.
It’s great that her work in the District is recognised, not only by us, but also more broadly in the community.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to highlight Scouting and the vital work that our volunteers do in giving skills for life to the young people of Newcastle.
The award was presented this evening (11th June 2018) at a volunteer networking event, by Cllr Gill Hesom, Mayor of Newcastle.
To be eligible for the award, the nominee needed to reside in the council district of Newcastle-under-Lyme and volunteer for a charity or community group that benefits the residents / habitat of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
