South West Volunteer of the Year 2021

A massive congratulations to Claire Bryant, who has been confirmed as this year's Volunteer of the Year, at the CIM SW Regional Awards.

What the nominations said about Claire:

Claire is enthusiasm personified. The absolute epitome of a valuable and utterly lovely volunteer. We love her tenacious determination and the way that she is so very good at coming up with ideas and suggestions. In fact, we just don't know where she finds the time to be so involved, and yet she is always so enthusiastic and passionate too. She has come up with so many ideas, she keeps the team on track, when pulling together the ideas, and always celebrates our hard wins – really hard. It's clear how much she adores being part of our board. Her positive outlook and flowing ideas, never cease, she writes articles for the website AND set up our WhatsApp group, to create an amazing sense of community amongst the board. She’s a real diamond and the team is so lucky to have her.
She smashed the Education Ambassador role. We are so impressed, how she manages to be all over this. Knowing all the people she does, giving talks, and supporting our events across the South West, and she always does it so enthusiastically every time. You could say almost like a Jack Russell, but one who is very lovely and also a very safe pair of hands too.

Congratulations Claire and thank you for your endless enthusiasm and all your hard work.
