2021 Volunteer Awards

We would be nothing without the amazing people who give up their time and use their skills to run our charity.

We are extremely grateful for all our volunteer’s efforts and what they achieve from them for our beneficiaries. To recognise particular individuals’ superb work, we have created an annual award scheme.

Chair of Trustees Katie Atkinson announced this year’s recipients at our annual general meeting. Later we presented them with certificates and £20 of shopping vouchers.

Producing the 5th European Aniridia Conference has taken massive team effort by several volunteers in recent months. We will recognise their incredible output and impact next year.


Outstanding contribution Award

We thanked Lyn Buller for their ongoing dedication as a volunteer, particularly in running the befriending scheme and providing special educational needs resources and advice. These services make a positive difference to the lives of our members and her work on them is greatly appreciated.

Volunteer of the Year Award

We thanked Aaron Lee for their hard work in producing the excellent Volunteer Induction Pack. This will help us grow our volunteer base, allowing us to do more.

Get involved

Come and join Aaron, Lyn and the rest of the brilliant Aniridia Network team so we can do even more. We are eager to use the skills you already have and provide the opportunity to develop more, through training and experience. Look at all the ways we are looking for volunteers to help and get in touch.
