Volunteers Bulwell Star Awards
Volunteers Bulwell Star Awards, When I first started painting in 2014 and took the title of Artist, I never expected things would turned out as they have today. I am a volunteer for the arts Bulwell Arts Festival, the organisers gave me a opportunity to exhibit my art during the 2016 Arts Festival, and I have been a Volunteer ever since.
I am also a member of the Bulwell Connector consisting of a group of artists that meet up every month, we are art champions for Bulwell, the connectors initiative is to bring arts and culture to Bulwell, involving all the community, bringing people together, so, when I received a email informing me that I have been nominated and inviting to attend the Bulwell Stars Award ceremony, well, I was knocked back.
The Bulwell Councillors set up the Bulwell Stars Awards as a way of thanking all the volunteers within the bulwell area who contribute their free time to help other in their community, I felt honoured to have been nominated for this award, and I was doubly surprised when my name was called out to go on stage and receive the Bulwell Stars Runners up award. The awards were presented by the Bulwell Councillor John Hartshorne, Jackie Morris, Ginny Klein and Alex Norris MP for Nottingham City. I wish to thank and congratulate all my fellow nominees and winners of the 2018 Bulwell Stars Award, and to all Volunteers for having excepted me and having faith in me.
