OUTSTANDING levels of commitment and a caring approach is what the South Wales Health & Care Awards judges were looking for when they picked the winner of the Volunteer of the Year title.
And, in the end, it was Megan, who volunteers for Sparkle, the charity partner of Serennu Children’s Centre in High Cross, that bagged the Monmouthshire Building Society-sponsored gong.
Regular childhood trips to the centre for physio and occupational therapy led Megan to become a volunteer for Sparkle.
The charity provides specialist leisure activities and clubs for youngsters with disabilities and/or developmental difficulties.
