Charity champs honoured at volunteer ‘Oscars’

Volunteers from all over South Ayrshire were recognised for their commitment to helping others at a special awards ceremony at Ayr Gaiety this week.

A total of 277 volunteers from 23 community organisations and charities were nominated for the 2022 South Ayrshire Volunteer Awards.

The evening was compered by panto stars Jerry Taylor and Fraser Boyle. Presenting the awards was Professor Fiona McQueen, former chief nursing officer who became well known to the public after regularly joining the First Minister at her daily Covid briefings during the pandemic, and leader of South Ayrshire Council, Councillor Peter Henderson.

Bronze awards were presented to volunteers for one to five years of selfless service, Silver awards for five to 10 years and Gold awards for 10 to 15 years.

Lifetime Awards were made to volunteers who have dedicated themselves to local good causes for 15 years and over.
Young people aged 12 to 25 who have clocked up more than 200 hours of volunteering picked up Saltire Awards on the night.

Exclusively this year, two Special Recognition awards were made to two exceptional Scout leaders – Jane Calderwood who has volunteered for 51 years and Bob McIntyre who has been a volunteer for an incredible 57 years.

Special Community Champion awards were also made to four people who were nominated by local people for their tireless work in their communities – Mary Brown from Mossblown; Mandy Hickman-Ralph from Tarbolton; Patricia Watts from Girvan, and Robert Green from Lochside. Mr Green sadly passed away before the ceremony but his daughters were there to accept the award in memory of their father.

The local heroes who received awards give up their time to make a difference to the following organisations: 48th Ayrshire Dundonald Scout Group Registered Charity (OSCR) SC043158 Ayrshire Cancer Support Ayrshire Council on Alcohol Broken Chains Ayr Clean Up Tarbolton Woods Campaign Community Gift Exchange Craigie Community Association Craigie Intergenerational Gardening Group
