Devon Rape Crisis Service was delighted that one of their volunteers, Hannah, won the Keeping People Safe & Well Volunteer of the Year Award, sponsored by the Mildmay-White Fund. The result was announced at the Volunteer of the Year Awards on Thursday 10th October, an event organised by Devon Community Foundation, a grant making charity that supports hundreds of small voluntary and community groups helping local people in need, including Devon Rape Crisis Service.
DRCS is very lucky to have a group of amazing volunteers who provide an invaluable service to women in Devon who have experienced rape or sexual violence. Hannah was chosen as the winner for the award because of the wide range of work that she tirelessly carries out at DRCS and the fact that she is one of our youngest volunteers. Part of Hannah's prize was a cheque for £250 to spend on the organisation and she has asked for the money to go towards volunteer resources and services for younger women. Thank you to everyone who voted and well done Hannah!
