2017 Award Winners
The Volunteer Appreciation Awards are the county’s way of recognising the hard work and commitment of our club volunteers without whom our clubs could not function. The 2017 awards were presented at an awards evening in conjunction with the RFU Mitsubishi Awards, at Twickenham Stadium on Friday 9th June.
The awards built on the success of the previous year, with clubs asked to nominate and vote for the winners of the Individual and Young Volunteer awards.
