Steph Griggs-TrevarthenOur long-time volunteer coordinator Steph Griggs-Trevarthen was in for a very special surprise on Monday night: at the OCVA Oxfordshire Charity & Volunteer Awards 2011, Steph won a Volunteer Award for her work with Free Cakes for Kids Oxford. This is a fantastic achievement — well done, Steph!

Handed over by High Sheriff of Oxfordshire Mrs Penelope Glen in the glamourous Oxford Town Hall, the award was given to celebrate volunteers and “highlight the difference they have made in Oxfordshire”. As Mrs Glen quoted from the official nomination, “Stephanie has looked after the more than 20 volunteer bakers at Free Cakes for Kids Oxford. This involves welcoming and introducing new volunteers to the community group, making sure they understand the food safety and confidentiality policies, organising regular meetings and generally being the first point of contact for all problems and concerns”.

Having worked with the Oxford group for two-and-a-half years, Steph recently moved to Cardiff and took on the role of the Free Cakes for Kids UK Network coordinator.

The ceremony was impressive and very professionally organised by the OCVA team. A great display of all the talent, creativity and persistence that drives the Oxfordshire voluntary sector — and of course an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. Congratulations also to all the other winners, especially Benedict Leigh and his team at restore, who won the Charity of the Year award for a wonderful project.
