Celebrate our people changing lives by nominating them for Volunteer of the Year Award

Lenox Green

Do you know someone who changes peoples’ lives, and whose story could inspire us all? Then nominate them for our Volunteer of the Year Award (VOTY).

Previous winners include our colleague Lenox Green, who remortgaged his home to run a children’s centre in Hulme.

Lenox, an admissions assistant in the School of Mathematics, and his wife Heather have spent six evenings a week for over a decade helping young people have fun in a safe environment, get good advice on a range of issues and achieve their potential.

He’s so well loved that when a local burglar broke into the centre, his mates made him take the loot back! This moving film shows his amazing impact:

Nominate someone you know

The deadline for nominations is Monday (2 March).

Be inspired by the stories of our past winners and place your nomination on the Volunteer of the Year Awards website.
