On Saturday at our training day I was thrilled to be presented with a NCT Diamond Jubilee Award for my volunteering.
The citation read:
“As Regional Coordinator, Elaine supports all volunteers in the West Midlands as well as her local branch at grass-roots level. Her Facebook groups encourage the sharing of ideas between branches and also help everyone to coordinate dates and resources. She is an enthusiastic Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, turning up, week in, week out, to her branch group, where she is often to be found supporting new mums as well as helping with setting up and tidying away at the end of the session. She has been doing all this for more than a decade and helped hundreds of new parents.”
