Volunteer Awards

In 2023, the first Cransley Hospice Trust Volunteer Awards were presented in recognition of the outstanding contribution that our many volunteers make to the charity and importantly to our community.

Outstanding contribution to our community

We have over 100 volunteers here at Cransley Hospice Trust.  Each individual is an incredible person,  committed to sharing their passion, skills and time.  We are extremely proud and grateful to everyone for all the ways they support us, helping us to raise funds so that we can support and develop better end of life care for our community.

Volunteering for CHT has been a big part of my life and I’m excited to be a part of the future, helping raise more funds to update the hospice and develop the services for people in their last year of life. – Sally

It motivates us knowing that we’re doing something good and our time is being put to good use. It gets us out and about, widens our social circle and helps to keep us both physically and mentally fit.  – Pauline and Andy

Spirit of Cransley Award

Presented by the Chair of Trustees, this award is for an individual who embodies the values of the Trust and demonstrates this in the contribution that they make to their volunteering, irrespective of where in the Trust they volunteer.

Thus, they demonstrate responsibility in relation to their contribution, dependably attending regularly on their agreed hours, and always offering to undertake extra duties when required.

They always act with integrity, in relation to any decisions that they make and in their interactions with others, regularly demonstrating fair and ethical decisions when in a position to do so. They also show consideration and compassion for all their colleagues.

Winners 2023:

Gemma Blenco and Mike Hemmingway

Community Achievement Award

Presented by Rev. Dr. John Smith, this award is for a volunteer who makes an outstanding contribution to any role that results in raising funds for the Trust. It could involve a volunteer who works in retail, events, as a speaker or a community fundraiser.

The recipient of this award will demonstrate their willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ to support fundraising. It might be because they show great flexibility in supporting the many and varied tasks we have in raising funds or it may be the special level of support they have provided when volunteering in the areas of fundraising the Trust undertakes.

Ultimately, their contribution can be seen to make a direct enhancement to the fundraising operation.

Winners 2023
