Announcing the Winners of Our Active Devon Volunteer Awards for 2023

Our judging panel met at the end of September, and we are pleased to announce the winners of our Active Devon Volunteer Awards for 2023!

This year, we received double the entries that wPanel of judges selecting the Active Devon Volunteer Award Winners for 2023.e received last year, and it has shown us just how many people across Devon work really hard in an unpaid capacity to encourage people in their communities to be more active.

We’d like to recognise everyone who was nominated and those who took the time to complete the nomination form – your tireless work really makes a difference to the health and wellbeing of others.

Everyone who was nominated will receive a certificate from us and we will be visiting those who have won in the coming months to capture and share their stories.
