College volunteers applauded

Students at West Nottinghamshire College have been rewarded for their volunteering efforts at the college and within the community at an awards presentation.

At the ceremony on Thursday (25 April) principal and chief executive Asha Khemka OBE presented green, silver and gold awards to almost 60 students who between them have completed over 2,600 hours of volunteering.

Green awards were given to students who had completed ten hours of volunteering and the silver awards were presented to students who had given up 25 hours of their time to volunteer.

Meanwhile, those who had completed over 50 hours of volunteering were presented with gold awards.

Over the last academic year the students have been busy with a number of voluntary activities including litter picking in public places through the Clean up Mansfield campaign, fundraising for national charities and establishing a wildflower meadow on the college’s Derby Road campus field.

Students also got involved with Mansfield's Youth Conversation which saw more than 100 students come together to discuss local issues and the needs of young people.

Learner voice co-ordinator Sue Harries said: “Every student who has given up their time to help other people or to make these projects a success was praised at the awards ceremony.

“It makes me proud to see so many individuals wanting to get involved in the many volunteering initiatives that the Students’ Union has organised over the last year.”
