Volunteer Award Winners

Long ago, in our previous incarnation as the SUDRG, we decided to hold an Annual Award Ceremony for our volunteers. After all, we are a volunteer run organisation; indeed they are the very life blood of our service(s). As a service user charity we have seen our volunteers achieve the most incredible things, and once a year we do our best to recognise that fact by holding a ceremony in the Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall. We work hard to write individual speeches for the award winners, print up and frame certificates and generally celebrate the year’s hard work. It is arguably my favourite evening of the year – funny, emotional . . . . . . joyous.

A few points of interest . . . . . paid employees of BoB are not eligible for awards, and there are a couple of notable exceptions to look out for in the list below. The ‘Vision Thing’ Award is given to a service professional that has gone way past the call of duty when it comes to supporting and helping our organisation. The criteria for this award are very hard to meet, and we do not present it every year. In our entire history we have only ever awarded three.

We don’t always present a specific award each year. These awards are hard earned and are regarded as a badge of honour, so if no one meets the criteria for an award in a particular year, it remains un-won.

The SUDRG and by extension, BoB, have from the very beginning been strong believers in partnership working. We are not, and never have been in competition with the rest of the treatment system, but intend rather to complement it. With that in mind we decided in 2011 to present a single award to a service professional who’s attitude toward, and support of our team has made a substantial difference to our volunteers. In fact we liked the idea so much, we kept presenting them!

Lastly, we occasionally present multiple awards for the simple reason that the qualities people bring to our service(s) are often so exceptional it is not possible to pick between individuals.

In celebration of this wonderful event, below is a list of the award winners. Two things stood out when typing up this page. Firstly, you can measure the growth of the organisation, year on year by the number of awards presented. Secondly, people often stay with us for a period of years, demonstrated by the fact that some individuals have won more than one award. So without any further ado . . . . . .
