There are lots of great social groups and activities on offer across Lichfield District but not everyone finds it easy to take part and get involved. They may lack the confidence to try new things, be shy about meeting new people or simply not be aware of what is on offer or where things are happening.
The Support Staffordshire Volunteer Star Awards are cabaret style evenings held in a number of districts across Staffordshire, each with a local focus. These events are aimed at publicly recognising and celebrating the valuable contribution volunteers play in supporting our community.
This is a great opportunity for the community to say thank you and really appreciate the work being carried out by an amazing army of incredibly inspiring hidden heroes.
