Volunteering award for Ted
A VOLUNTEER from Wilton has been given an award for his commitment to Community Transport South Wiltshire.
Ted Risby, who has worked for the group since 1997, was awarded the Arthur Laflin Volunteer Award at Community First’s annual meeting in Devizes.
Although he has now officially retired from regular driving, he continues to help out, providing cover for holidays or in an emergency.
Mr Risby was described as a “very loyal, popular driver”, who is “unfailingly cheerful, genial, reliable and resourceful”.
Awards were given in a number of categories including most innovative community transport group, village retail award and young carers’ achievement award.
