Mark Thorpe: The Winner of the Unsung Hero Award 2017
Mark Thorpe, a volunteer at Sheffield Health and Social Care, was nominated for our award by Susan Robinson.
Mark’s story really resonated with us because it demonstrates an incredible commitment to his volunteer NHS work. Incredibly, Mark works full time and takes holidays to help organise events at Sheffield Health and Social Care, the work for which he was nominated for.
He receives no payment or financial reward for his volunteer work and yet he spends his own money on prizes and karaoke equipment that the Trust do not have budget for.
His nomination spread across two pages – the longest we’ve ever received – and was a real testament to the passion and dedication for which he was nominated.
