Pam Ashton who won the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 said "It's important to nominate people for what they have achieved throughout their lives. People don't look for recognition, but it is so nice if they get it. I was shocked when I was nominated and thought I was so undeserving".

Vince Lobely was honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to a Safer Community Award. He said "it is an important way to say thank you to those who give up their time to volunteer.  We don't do it to get thanks, but it is very nice when someone does thank you. It's an extra special thing".

Joshua Whitehorn, the 2014 Young Volunteer of the Year winner, said "I volunteer at a drama group for adults with learning disabilities who aren't able to do it on their own. So, I come in and help boost their confidence levels and their abilities, and of course have fun with them".

Rihannon Sweeney, the 2014 Anti-bullying Champion Award winner, had an amazing experience at the awards. she said "The ceremony is amazing, it's great to see so many people that have done such amazing things".
