Passionate volunteer recognised at top awards event
Congratulations to E&L columnist Gavin Graham whose sterling work as a volunteer has been recognised with a top award.
Gavin has been named Volunteer of the Year in this year’s Dumfries and Galloway Life magazine awards. Unfortunately, he couldn’t make it to the glittering presentation ceremony at Easterbrook Hall, but the trophy was accepted on his behalf by Glen Cavers, who has succeeded him as Chairman of the Buccleuch Centre Trust.
Gavin says his love of working to help the community probably started with the Boys Brigade in Langholm. Since then he’s taken on countless voluntary roles, including Chairman and Trustee of Langholm Initiative and Chairman of Langholm Walks. He says he couldn’t have done any of it without wonderful back-up.
