After a year of dedication, hard-work and doggy cuddles, your incredible Guide Dogs Student-Led Project placed in the top 3 in the Guide Dogs Local Volunteer Awards.
The awards are run annually by Guide Dogs UK to recognise the inspirational volunteers who make a difference to thousands of people's lives every day.
Two awards were presented to Niamh Tame, your Guide Dogs SLP leader, for the categories Younger Volunteer and Passionate.
Passion has certainly driven your SLP group this year who have managed to raise an incredible £962.45 for charity.
Niamh had a few words to say about the achievement:
"It was an honour and a shock to be nominated and shortlisted for these awards. I cannot express how grateful I am to everyone who nominated us and to our amazing volunteers who dedicate whatever time they can to the group. We have such an amazing bunch of people who are an absolute joy to work with. Now with a new committee, all of whom are literal angels and so passionate about what we do, I have never been more excited for our next year of fundraising and know we can only go up from here."
We're so proud of this SLP group's continuous hard work and can't wait to see what they get up to next year.
Guide Dogs UK is a charity organisation that is completely funded by donators. Without volunteers such as UoL Guide Dogs they could not provide lifelong support for those with visual impairments.
