The Federation of Small Businesses
(FSB) has launched its new ‘Volunteer
Champions’ awards to recognise members for their hard work
over the past year.
The awards will pay special consideration
to those businesses across Swindon and Wiltshire which
have gone the extra mile to support and encourage one another throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
The FSB has more than 23,000 members across the South West, many of which have stepped up in recent months
to offer practical support and advice for their fellow members.
The FSB South West Chairman Lee Nathan
has been impressed by the work volunteers have
put in, and is looking forward to recognising
and honouring their efforts.
He said, ‘’Throughout the pandemic our amazing
volunteer members have worked alongside our local staff and membership advisors
to provide a huge amount of help and encouragement to fellow SMEs going through
this most challenging of times.
“I am, therefore, so pleased to see that these awards have been set up to recognise
that work and we hope there will be many volunteers from this region who are
rewarded as part of the scheme.”
All FSB members across the UK will be encouraged to nominate volunteers.
FSB‘s National Chairman
Mike Cherry said, “I’ve been hugely proud of our volunteer and staff teams who,
through unprecedented times, have gone above and beyond to support the FSB, our
members and the wider small business community.
delighted that our Volunteer Champions awards provide a great opportunity to
offer a well-deserved thank you to all our volunteers for their amazing levels
