CTC Council announced the national and regional winners for the annual Volunteer of the Year Award at the CTC Annual Dinner and prize giving on 26th April at Stormont in Belfast.
Since their creation the awards have become the most prestigious awards in CTC. They celebrate the best of cycling – the people who make it happen at a local and regional level. Whether it’s organising the rides or fighting the cause of cyclists at the local council CTC’s volunteers are a symbol of the largest, most passionate group of cyclists in the country.
All the winners have been recognised for their achievements by fellow CTC members who nominated them as the Volunteer of the Year for their region. Eight individual winners and two groups went forward for recognition as the CTC National Volunteer of the Year and Voluntary Group of the Year.
The trophies and certificates were presented by the Permanent Secretary for the Department of Regional Development in Northern Ireland Paul Priestley.
