The awards ceremony was beautiful. There were so many different volunteers from all different organisations who worked through covid, tonight we all got recognition for the work we did.
The ceremony was held in our city hall.
The lord mayor of the city was there, along with other distinguished guests, like local politicians etc.
There were a lot of speeches made.
Each group had their own table. Each of us who were nominated got a certificate of appreciation.
We had to walk up on the stage to receive our certificate.
There were lots of group and individual photos taken, some of which will be in the local newspapers.
There was a live band, and caterers, we had lots of yummy food.
We had wraps, burgers, fried chicken, spring rolls, amongst other hot food.
Then dessert was mini cakes, there was cheese cake, lemon cake, mince pies, Christmas pudding, chocolate brownies…and lots of other cakes.
The food was delicious!
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the night. I am going to buy a frame for my certificate.
It felt really good to get recognition. I felt great about what I do and I am glad that I worked through the pandemic.
