To celebrate Volunteers Week we organised an event at Lea Hall Institute and invited local groups and organisations to nominate local volunteers for an award. We were joined by the new Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Raymond Hassall, who kindly agreed to present the awards. We also had the honour of having Justice Williams MBE as guest speaker and she spoke passionately about the positive impact that volunteering has on communities. After the certificates were presented there were opportunities for photographs and entertainment from celebrated local musician Milton Godfrey. The event ended with spectacular home-made cakes made by Shazia which proved to be very popular with all the guests. Birchfield Big Local would like to thank everyone who came and took part in the event and made it such a great day.
