Long Service Volunteer Awards

posted in: News | 0

Congratulations to our dedicated volunteers who have shown outstanding commitment to their GFS Groups over the years and who received long service awards at the recent GFS National Weekend.

Pam Hutchison: 45 years
Group: Eldon, North East
Pam is a true champion of volunteering in the North East. Pam runs GFS Eldon with fellow volunteer Janice Clarke which has been running since 1969. Not only does Pam offer her time every week, she is involved in motivating a whole new generation of volunteers. Pam has led the way for the development and growth of GFS in the North East, inspiring new volunteers and welcoming new groups to the GFS family.

Sharon Holland, 45 years
Group: Atherstone, Midlands
Sharon runs our biggest and one of the most thriving groups in GFS. She has a team of ten volunteers who help deliver three different sessions per week for girls from different age groups. Sharon is enormously committed, spending much of her time taking care of each aspect of the group and organising large-scale fun trips out for the girls to enjoy.

Marion McCumskay, 55 years
Group: Mill Hill, North West
Marion has long been involved with GFS, having started volunteering in the 1960’s. She is very active in her local area and has shown incredible commitment to GFS over the years. GFS Mill Hill is one of our oldest GFS Groups and provides a range of activities for the girls every week including singing and sports.

We want to reward other volunteers too!

If you, or another volunteer in your group, has been volunteering with GFS for 25 years or more please let us know.

GFS long service awards are presented to a volunteer in five year intervals thereafter. For example, a volunteer would receive an award on their 25th, 30th, 35th (etc) year (we don’t count years attending as a GFS girl).

For volunteer achievements and upcoming GFS anniversaries, contact Carla, GFS Volunteer Support Coordinator, by emailing carla@girlsfriendlysociety.org.uk or calling 0203 968 9124. Alternatively, you can speak to your RDC.
