It has been a whirlwind of a year for our cherished volunteer Paul Moore (aka Bugman)!

Paul scooped the TCV ‪Green Hero Volunteer of the Year award in October and collected his award at an event in Westminster. His success was followed by winning the Crown 'Older Volunteer of the Year' at the Belfast City Council ‪‎Age Friendly awards at City Hall in November.

Last month, Paul was nominated to represent TCV at the Buckingham Palace Garden Party where he was invited to meet Prince Philip! He attended the Garden Party with his wide Jacoba and TCV Board Member Jane Stephenson and her husband.

Two of our volunteers had an amazing afternoon at the Royal Garden Party in Hillsborough Castle. Owen Eggleston from the Belfast team and Jonathon Ackerman from Clandeboye were invited to the event in recognition for volunteering within their communities.

Both were excited to swap their usual work clothes for smarter attire today as they met other invited guests from across Northern Ireland. Thanks to Belfast City Council and DEL for nominating them and to Owen and Jonathon for all their hard work!
