Full Circle volunteer for 17 years, Sue Gökgör, received a Certificate of Honour at Oxford Town Hall this month. The Lord Mayor of Oxford, Councillor Jean Fooks, recognised thirteen volunteers for their dedication and exceptional service to others in the community at the annual awards ceremony. The Lord Mayor, together with the Sheriff of Oxford, Councillor Mohammed Altaf Khan, and the Deputy Lieutenant, Lady Helen Baker, presented each volunteer with a Certificate of Honour as a mark of appreciation for the invaluable work they have done within their local communities and for the benefit of the city as a whole.
The Lord Mayor said:
“It is an honour to meet, officially recognise and give our thanks to these exceptional individuals who have given their time, patience and dedication to our city. The voluntary sector is vital in supporting public services and delivering help to those who need it most. We are truly grateful for their contribution and for those like them who are volunteering across Oxford.”
Nominations were considered by a panel of independent judges. The panel consisted of the Lord Mayor of Oxford for 2016-17, Councillor Mohammed Altaf Khan, the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson OBE, and the Director of Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action, Kathy Shaw.
