Award winners from Flintshire County were :
- Ada June Davies

- Laraine Davies
In recognition of her dedication and commitment with CRUSE supporting bereaved families
In recognition of their work to support disabled young people and their families
Chief Officer, Ann Woods, who attended the event on behalf of Flintshire Local Voluntary Council, commented ‘it is so heartwarming to hear so many stories of how Volunteers have changed the lives of others. Thank you to the High Sheriff and to DVSC for facilitating this year’s event, giving us time to recognise and celebrate the unique support volunteers can bring’
The event will run again in 2019 within the County of Wrexham.
