At the recent Pride of Forth Valley Awards, one of our Swiis Foster Care Fife team was recognised for his years of volunteering in his local community, along with his valuable work with the Alloa Round Table.
During the ceremony, Fife Education Worker Kenney Ramage was awarded ‘Volunteer of the Year’. This was in recognition of his community work with Alloa Round Table over the last six years. When collecting his award, Kenney said that he was blown away by the recognition people were showing for the work that he and the other members of Alloa Round Table do each year.
After receiving this award, Kenney had another reason to celebrate – award number two! The second award of the evening for Kenny was for ‘Diamond of the Year’, the highest accolade of the evening.
When presented with the award, Kenney said that he doesn’t do it for the accolades – he explained that he volunteers to see the smiles on the faces of the children when they watch the firework displays, to feel the appreciation from the runners at Alloa Half Marathon, and the looks of surprise on the faces of the OAPs at the Christmas party held in Alloa Town Hall. Kenney finished by saying: “That’s the best accolade we can receive as an organisation.”
A huge well done to Kenney for all his hard work and dedication!
