Carl Williams is our Young Volunteer of the year
6 June 2012
Each week in the run up to our
Volunteer Awards on 5 July, we'll be featuring one of our six award winners. This week is the
winner of our Young Volunteer Award, Carl Williams, who volunteers
in our Porth shop.
Carl joined Tenovus two years ago
and was painfully shy; he found it difficult to hold a conversation
with other staff or customers due to lack of confidence. Through
his journey with the other volunteers and staff at the Porth shop,
he has now built his confidence and takes part in all our
fundraising events, playing a huge part in promoting Tenovus to his
He was nominated due to his
exceptional attitude towards all the volunteers, whether
he's supporting the older ladies or encouraging young
volunteers to get involved. He is also studying for the NVQ Retail
and Customer Services to further develop his skills.
Carl also recently joined our Sing
for Life choir in Pontypridd and sang at our St. David's Day dinner
in March… all this and he is still only 21 years old!
We will present Carl with his award
at our Volunteer Awards night on July 5 at St David's Hotel, along
with the winners of our 5 other categories. For our full list of
