Leicestershire Cares Awards: Outstanding Volunteer Contribution to the VIP Project Award 2023

21 Sep 2023

The VIP team were delighted to award Sue Woollett with the “Outstanding Volunteer Contribution to the VIP Project Award” award at the Leicestershire Cares Celebration Event 2023.

The event provided us with the opportunity to network with our business members and provide them with insight into the various projects within Leicestershire Cares. This year, Sue Woollett won the award because of her consistent support in a range of events organised by the VIP project.

The VIP Project has held various events and when contact was made with Sue Woollett, she was always willing to get involved and add value to the lives of young people in the form of Personal branding sessions, C.V Clinics, and Mock Interviews. Sue Woollett always goes the extra mile, and she has been an absolute pleasure to work with. We are grateful to Sue Woollett of Stepnell for all her hard work in the past year; we look forward to future collaborations
