Many congratulations to Encarnita Hernanz Gonzalez, for winning the Southwark Stars Older Volunteer of the Year award, in recognition of her outstanding voluntary service with Parent Action where she provides translation support for local families.

The prestigious award was presented by Southwark Charities Chair of Trustees, Caroline Croft, at the Southwark Stars event held at Tate Modern’s Tate Exchange on 7 June. Southwark Charities was delighted to part fund this year’s Southwark Stars event, organised by Community Southwark,  which recognises the amazing contribution of volunteers to Southwark’s diverse communities.

We also congratulate all of the other winners of Southwark Stars awards, who help to make our community and civic life in Southwark vibrant and inspiring.
