New Horizons Volunteer Awards
In conjunction with national volunteer week New Horizons had their own celebrations at the Aberdare centre on Thursday 9th June to acknowledge and thank the volunteers for all their hard work and achievements throughout the year.
During the celebrations Tracy Thomas (who has coordinated the volunteers during the last year) and Gill Malpas (vice chair of the management committee) presented the volunteers who were able to make the event with certificates to acknowledge their contribution to New Horizons. During the celebrations the William Jones volunteer of the year award was awarded to Kelly Ann Gomer.
William Jones was both a member and volunteer of New Horizons for many years, unfortunately William suddenly passed away and his family wished to leave a lasting legacy of William who was a dear friend to all who attended the centre so the William Jones volunteer award was developed. Kelly achieved this award for her outstanding contribution and dedication to New Horizons as voted for annually by the members. After the celebrations volunteers enjoyed a beautiful buffet and socialized with one another.

New Horizons has given me back confidence and belief in myself. Through volunteering I have realised that I still have values and can help others who are struggling with mental health disorders
I look at New Horizons as my second home. It has given me the opportunities to learn new skills and do things I never thought I’d do
