A young Whiteabbey woman has been recognised for the contribution she has made over the past year to the Cedar Foundation.
The organisation recently held a special event to thank all its volunteers who had made a significant contribution to the charity’s work.
On receipt of her certificate, 19-year-old Aisling Wilson from Whiteabbey, said: “I really love volunteering for Cedar.
“I provided support to people at jewellery making classes and arts and crafts sessions during the summer school and I had so much fun with everyone taking part.
“When I graduate from Art College with a degree in fine art, the experience I have gained through volunteering with Cedar will help me to gain employment in this line of work.”
Cedar provides services to children and adults with disabilities to enable them to get the most out of life and to be fully included in their communities.
Speaking at the ceremony, Wendy Osborne, chief executive of Volunteer Now said: “Volunteers at Cedar are a tremendous support to the delivery of services and I am delighted to be here to present them with recognition certificates and to award Cedar their Investing in Volunteers Award, the UK quality standard for good practice in volunteering management.”
