Our team at CVS Falkirk is delighted to announce the nominees of Falkirk’s 2022 Volunteer Awards! Winners will be announced on Wednesday 1st June, the first day of Volunteers’ Week (which runs 1st June – 7th June every year), the same day as our Picnic in the Park! event. Each and every one of our nominees deserves an award – as their nominations show, they do incredible things every day to help people and communities across Falkirk, and we would like to thank them for everything they have done.
