Greenhead Volunteers shortlisted for the Jo Cox Foundation More in Common Award

We are delighted to announce that the GVS Team and 10 students from Greenhead College have been shortlisted for a Jo Cox Foundation More in Common Volunteer Award, for their voluntary work with Valorum Care.

Each year students at Greenhead College are able sign up to the Greenhead Volunteering Scheme (GVS) as part of the College’s award-winning enrichment programme.  This year, 10 students volunteered their time to care for the elderly at Beechwood Nursing Home, an invaluable opportunity for them as they enter competitive caring professions.

These students have now been recognised for their fantastic work with Valorum Care by the Jo Cox More in Common Volunteer Awards. The awards recognise and celebrate the many volunteers who work tirelessly across Kirklees who bring people together and the winners will be revealed on 2nd April.

Congratulations to students Olivia Dyson, Maiwand Habibee, Sakib Shadman, Leah Thomas, Ellie Cobham, Kiren Kular, Lily Pham, Ali Beladi, Rahim Said, Junaid Shahzad on this fantastic achievement, which is an acknowledgement of their hard work and dedication.

Lynsey Jones, Personal Tutor at Greenhead College commented: 

“This is a wonderful acknowledgement of the work of the GVS team and our amazing volunteers who give their time to help each week at Valorum Care.”
