WCAVA Nuneaton and Bedworth Volunteer Awards 2019

Thursday 6th June saw Warwickshire CAVA and over 150 guests celebrate the individual and collective achievements of volunteers across Nuneaton and Bedworth with our third annual ‘Volunteer Awards’.

We held the Awards in partnership with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and Warwickshire County Council as part of events to celebrate Volunteers Week. We were delighted that this year the Morgan Awards were included; set up by Colin and Sue Hehir as a legacy to their talented artist son Morgan who tragically died in 2015, this special Award category recognised Nuneaton and Bedworth’s unsung heroes.
