Chris Gunter was a special guest at this week's Enfield Volunteer Awards at the Borough's Civic Centre.

Over 200 volunteers of all ages received their certificates for completing over 100 hours of volunteering during the year.

Those receiving their awards have worked as volunteers with groups such as children and young people, those with mental health problems and learning difficulties, people with disabilities, older people, sports clubs and other community groups.

Chris was present to hand out prizes at the evening ceremony, and said: "I think the good work these volunteers have taken part in over the last year deserves to be rewarded, and it was a pleasure to meet them all.

"Tottenham Hotspur as a football club has very strong links with it's local community and will always look to support events like this in whatever way possible."

Part of Enfield council's Local Area Agreement is to increase the amount of volunteering going on in the borough, and to facilitate this the council launched the ‘100 Hours Scheme' which involved a number of people who all agreed to give up a minimum of 100 hours of their time to good causes.

Niki Nicolaou, Senior Grants Officer, said: "These events are always amazing, and we love seeing all the volunteers together.

"This year we were delighted to have Chris to hand out the certificates and meet our volunteers. It was a great day"
