Volunteer Centre wins High Sheriff award

Uckfield Volunteer Centre has won an award from the High Sheriff of East Sussex for its youth volunteering project.

The High Sheriff, Mrs Violet Hancock, came to a Celebrate Youth ceremony in Uckfield last year where the efforts of young volunteers were recognised.

Towards the end of the High Sheriff’s term of office it is customary for them to consider making their own awards to East Sussex individuals, charities or companies in recognition of their valuable service to the community, and Uckfield Volunteer Centre has been named as a recipient.

The commendation reads “for encouraging young people to engage with their community in a voluntary capacity”.

Volunteer centre manager and trustee Ann Montier said she was delighted the centre’s work with young volunteers had been recognised.

• Sadly the Volunteer Centre, like many other Uckfield organisations, is temporarily closed because of the Coronavirus outbreak. It can still be contacted by email at office@uckfieldvolunteer.org.uk and the telephone is being checked frequently for messages, 0185 760019.
