Thames Chase Conservation Volunteers rewarded in the Mayor of London’s Volunteering Awards
The Thames Chase Trust were delighted that the sterling work carried out by its conservation volunteers was recognised in the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s, volunteering awards for 2019.
At a celebration at city Hall on Monday 14th October the Mayor commended the considerable contribution that volunteering makes to the diverse communities across London. The evening highlighted a broad range of activities and services that volunteer groups are providing or supporting both in the public and private sector.
Sadiq Khan said to the assembled groups ‘You should all be incredibly proud of your achievements. I’m honoured to be Mayor of a city where so many give up their time to help others.’
The awards were in eight main categories with Thames Chase conservation volunteers finalists in the London’s Environment category along with North West Kent Conservation Volunteers, Youth Travel Ambassadors from Tower Hamlets and the winners Good Deeds on Bikes from Waltham Forest.
Sadiq Khan continued ‘Volunteering is a brilliant way to meet new people from different backgrounds and for making connections. Volunteering is good for London and good for Londoners. Please keep up the great work and spread the word. The more people who volunteer, the more our city will benefit’.
The Board of Trustees for Thames Chase Trust are extremely proud of the inspirational support given to a wide range of organisations and projects by their conservation
teams in helping to maintain, develop and enhance the landscape through the 40sq miles of the Thames Chase Community Forest.
