The Mansfield Volunteer Awards provided an opportunity to say a big thank you to all the volunteers across the District, who work tirelessly throughout the year to make a difference to their communities.

The Awards Ceremony is organised every year by a steering group of volunteers, tenants and residents and voluntary groups. The group is supported by officers from Mansfield District Council, Mansfield Community and Voluntary Service (CVS) and Nottinghamshire County Council and runs solely on grants, fundraising and donations. Last year the Steering Group made the decision to introduce a new Business in the Community’ Award, which honours businesses who support the community by volunteering their time and will hopefully make positive links with the business community in Mansfield.
