Our inspirational volunteer has been crowned a Coronation Champion

We’re excited to announce that our amazing volunteer Douglas Sewell has been crowned a Coronation Champion!

The Coronation Champions Awards, launched by the Royal Voluntary Service, is all about celebrating the work of extraordinary volunteers across the UK.

Douglas is one of 500 volunteers that have been selected as Coronation Champions and will receive an official Coronation Champion pin badge, a signed certificate from Their Majesties, and an invite to one of the Coronation Celebrations.

Stroke survivor Douglas is one of our Community Support Service volunteers, he’s a Trustee, Chairperson of our Volunteering Strategy group and part of many working groups to help improve the volunteer experience at CHSS.

On top of that, Douglas has taken on a number of fundraising challenges to raise vital funds to help make sure there’s no life half lived in Scotland.

Douglas devotes his time to helping other stroke survivors with their recovery, offering lifeline one-to-one support to build their confidence, get active again, and improve their wellbeing. He helps people see beyond their stroke and to live life to the full – he’s a true inspiration.

We are thrilled for Douglas; he couldn’t be more deserving of this award.

You can find out more about the awards by visiting the Royal Voluntary Service’s awards page.

People are leaving hospital feeling scared and alone. You can change that.

Your donation can help people do more than just survive – you can help them really live.
