Volunteers' Week is an annual campaign which celebrates the fantastic contribution that millions of volunteers make across the UK.
The British Science Association works with an estimated 5700 volunteers every year. The Association celebrates Volunteers' Week, with the presentation of the Sir Walter Bodmer Award, an award to recognise the outstanding contributions our volunteers make to our work.
This year the judging committee were very pleased to receive many nominations for the award. With so many examples of excellent volunteering it was difficult to choose just one winner, and the committee decided to award an additional Long Service Award.
Science Brainwaves, the new Sheffield-based Branch, have won the prestigious Sir Walter Bodmer Award from the British Science Association, recognising our acheivements over the last year and congratulating the whole committee on their hard work, all of whom are University of Sheffield students.
The Branch is noted to have added value and strength not just to the British Science Association but also to University of Sheffield; all the volunteers are based at the University - from undergraduate and postgraduate students, to post-doctoral researchers.
