Peerie Trows and Willin Haands 2023

⭐ Volunteers ⭐

We'd like to say a huge Thank You to all our volunteers at Ability Shetland! ????

Thank you to Voluntary Action Shetland Volunteering for creating awards (Peerie Trows and Willin Haands) that recognise volunteers outside the Saltire Awards category.

VAS say this about the awards: “The aim of the new awards is to recognise and celebrate all kinds of volunteering, including both formal and informal volunteering and celebrate individuals of all ages who volunteer in Shetland either formally through an organisation or informally by helping out and showing kindness in their communities. VAS wants to recognise the valuable contribution volunteers participate in the length and breadth of the Shetland Isles.

The new awards consist of two categories, the ‘Willin Haands Award’ for adults aged 26 and over, and the ‘Peerie Trows Award’ for children 11 and under. The awards complement the national Saltire Awards scheme, which VAS deliver annually to recognise young people aged 12 to 25.”
