Volition beekeeping project shortlisted for first Church Times Green Health Awards

Volition’s beekeeping project was one of ten shortlisted for the first Church Times Green Health Awards. Our beekeepers Canon Adrian Rhodes and Amber Sanchez, Director of Volition, Anthony O’Connor, and our volunteer Andrew attended Lambeth Palace on 2nd October where the winners were announced. The day included interesting presentations around the importance of gardens and nature, and how they can help to promote healing and wellness. This was Andrew’s first trip to London and he had a great day, including visits to the top sites, and of course, the beautiful Lambeth Palace.

We would like to congratulate St Paul’s, Camden Square for winning with their Woodland Garden project. Here’s to next year! We would also like to thank The Church Times for shortlisting us and inviting us to the ceremony, and to all of our volunteers who have contributed to the success of the project over the years.
