Ossie awards Enfield's volunteers

Spurs legend Ossie Ardiles was a special guest as the tireless work of Enfield's volunteers was celebrated on Monday.

More than 150 people who have given up 100 hours or more of their time to voluntary work in the Borough received recognition from Enfield Council. More than 1,600 volunteers have been recognised since the scheme began.

The volunteers each received a certificate and a limited edition pin badge at a reception held at the Civic Centre hosted by the Mayor of Enfield, Cllr Jayne Buckland.

As part of the Club's continued support of community initiatives within our local area, Ossie attended in his role as Ambassador.

Speaking about the volunteers' achievements, Cllr Chaudhury Anwar MBE, Cabinet Member for Community Cohesion and Capacity Building in the Third Sector, said: "The contribution Enfield's dedicated volunteers make to communities and organisations across the Borough is incredible. We want to thank them publicly for their selfless support and the example they set to others. The volunteers whose work we are celebrating are proof that giving a little of your time can make a big difference."
