An awards ceremony to pay tribute to the countless volunteers across the country was held last week.

On Thursday June 6, Volunteer Centre Midlothian held their annual Volunteers’ Week Awards Ceremony at Newbattle Abbey College.

More than 100 people attended the event which organisers hailed as “a great success”.

A spokesman added: “We received a high number of nominations this year so our sponsors had a very difficult task choosing the winners.”
