THE work ethic of an 80-year-old Falmouth volunteer has been recognised with a special trophy.

Pam Beattie won the vulnerable adult category at the Volunteer Cornwall Awards held at Newquay’s Atlantic Hotel in November.

“Pam was nominated not only by ourselves for all the work that she does in the gardens, but also by the RNLI and the Mission for Seafarers,” said a spokesman for Gyllyngdune Gardens.

“She is a really valuable member of our team and despite being in her 80's, she can give any teenager a run for the money with her work ethic.”

Colonel Edward Bolitho, Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, presented the awards along with the sponsor for each category.

This is the fifth year we have run these awards which gives everyone a chance to say thank you to and recognise the dedication and commitment of Cornwall’s volunteers.
