Middlesex hosted their annual club volunteer awards at the Spirit of Rugby on Friday 7th June. This is the 3rd year that Middlesex have combined the awards with Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition. Over 160 club volunteers were in attendance from 27 clubs with a record number of volunteer nominations received through the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer recognition.
Winners were treated to a special appearance by England 7s Legend James Rodwell, who, along with Andrew Joaman of Mitsubishi, presented all individual nominees with their certificates and ruck sacks.
Two Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Nominees were then selected to represent Middlesex at the National Awards in September.
