Volunteers from every nook and cranny of Yorkshire have consistently shown unparalleled passion and dedication, always going the extra mile to elevate their communities. It's this very spirit of altruistic dedication that the Volunteer Award seeks to honour.
Celebrating Selfless Dedication
The Volunteer Award isn't merely an expression of gratitude. It's a heartfelt tribute to Yorkshire's silent heroes: those individuals who, with no anticipation of rewards, ceaselessly dedicate themselves to the service of others. Their deeds resonate with the quintessential Yorkshire spirit, illustrating that true impact isn't about grand gestures but about the steady, silent commitment to others' well-being.
Spotlight on our 2023 Volunteer of the Year: Saliha Sadiq
In 2023, we were honoured to highlight our Volunteer of the Year, Saliha Sadiq. An illuminating presence in Bradford and further afield, Saliha's initiatives during the pandemic have been exemplary. Tackling misinformation and aiding the vulnerable, she introduced free counselling sessions for the elderly and gained global recognition with her video endorsing the Covid vaccine. Balancing responsibilities at the NHS and Bradford University and proficient in four languages, Saliha broadened her services at the Milan Centre, reaching out to boys, under-18s, expectant women, and young mothers. Her endeavours encapsulate the very essence of the Volunteer Award: unwavering dedication, selflessness, and transformative change.
