Marsh Young Volunteer Award with the Churches Conservation Trust

The Marsh Young Volunteer Award with the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT) recognises an outstanding young volunteer who goes above and beyond what is expected of them in supporting the organisation.

The CCT has many young volunteers who contribute their time, skills and energy to the CCT’s conservation projects as well as to their local communities.

The CCT is a national charity protecting historic churches at risk. Their unique collection of English parish churches include examples of architecture, archaeology and art from 1,000 years of history, and are open to millions of visitors each year.

The 2015 winner is William Sheffield

William volunteered with the CCT over the school summer holidays in 2015 to produce a walking trail of the cluster of churches in South Oxfordshire: St Peter’s in Wallingford, St Mary’s in Newnham Murren and St John the Baptist in Mongewell. He did an outstanding job of collecting all the information required for this task including: walking route information, information about the churches and photographs. He then consolidated all this information and edited it to a very high standard and also helped with the layout of the leaflet. William’s commitment to this project was impressive and it will hopefully drive many more visitors to the church in due course.
