Following the achievement of Loughborough Students' Action Group becoming the latest winners of David Cameron's Big Society Award, the Chair of the group has spoken of the action's joy.
Winning this Big Society Award is indescribable - it's something I've always believed in and I believe that Action embodies. There's a hundred and one reasons why people volunteer but at the end of the day, we like to think that our volunteers do it because they genuinely care.
Last year, the group recruited over 2,300 volunteers equating to 19,000 hours of time and £120,000 at minimum wage.
The Award was created to recognise and celebrate individuals, groups or organisations doing exceptional work in their community.
