Runnymede and Spelthorne Award Winners 2023

We had a fantastic night on Monday 5th June at this year’s Runnymede and Spelthorne Volunteer Awards which were hosted and jointly held with Royal Holloway University, with over 300 people attending.

Congratulations to all of our impressive winners. We heard wonderful stories of people making how people care for one another in our communities reflected in the large number of nominations we received.
