Stephen Flood, Volunteer and Peer Mentor Coordinator at North Yorkshire Horizons said: “Both women have made an outstanding contribution to their local communities and our services.
“We are very proud to see them both recognised for their hard work. Our volunteers undertake all manner of roles in our efforts to help people build better lives, they help us to deliver vital recovery support across the county.”
And he added: “It is great when people get the recognition they deserve, so we were thrilled to hear that not one but two of our volunteers had been nominated in the volunteer awards for Harrogate and surrounding boroughs.”
