"It’s an honour to be able to give awards to unsung heroes and Warwick Volunteers are a group of heroes that deserve to be celebrated.”

The High Sheriff award is awarded to recognise and celebrate the work of individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to the community.

Zosia East, Warwick Volunteers president and third year law student, said: “We have around 3,000 volunteers at the university so this award is for everyone who’s given up their time to help the community.

"Being a part of Warwick Volunteers is so rewarding because you can see that what you’re doing is having a positive impact on somebody’s life.”
