A splendid evening with around 250 people in attendance enjoyed a night of celebration of the volunteering community in the borough of Harrow. Ray Baker and myself were fortunate enough to share a table with the Leader of the council, Cllr Graham Henson and his wife, and fellow councillor Maxine Henson, amongst others. Canapés and bubbly were shared beforehand with a photo booth and a rousing introduction from the exuberant, The Worshipful The Mayor, Councillor Kareema Marikar.
Dinner was delicious range of Indian food and the compere moved things along briskly as the awards started being presented. Each group of nominees were called forward and the winner was invited onto the stage to receive their award from the guest presenter for the category. Runners up received a certificate extolling the virtues and winners a rather lovely glass trophy.
The Sopra Steria sponsored award was presented to the overall winners of all of the categories, i.e. the Volunteers of the Year. I was honoured to be invited on to stage to present this to the Infant Feeding Volunteers Peer Supporters.

Words and pictures are not enough to describe today, I have been privileged to witness something very special indeed.
