2015 Middlesex Rugby VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION AWARDS
The 2015 annual Community Rugby Volunteer Appreciation took on Friday 26th June at London Welsh RFC.
The Volunteer Appreciation Awards are the County’s way of recognising the hard work our volunteers do throughout the season to keep clubs running and rewarding those key individuals for their hard work. The dinner also gives clubs and volunteer co-ordinators the opportunity to network and share ideas with others.
President’s VII Awards
The President’s VII awards recognise clubs who have contributed to the development of the game of rugby. Awards were presented in the following categories:
