Earlier this month, RVA hosted the third annual Reading Volunteer Awards at the Roost in Thames Tower
The evening brought together members of the local community to acknowledge and celebrate the extraordinary contribution that volunteers and volunteering make to life in our town. You can take a look at images captured at the event, by local artist Kate Shorey, in the gallery below, and read more about the evening in an article by Community Journalist Oriela De Rossi.
