The first recipient of the Robert Sullivan-Tailyour Volunteer of the Year award for the BHS in Cornwall was Tamsin Hearle-Banks.
Tamsin is the Chairman of the committee and has been instrumental in organising and supporting many great events in the county.
Regional Manager Julie Garbutt said: "Tamsin has been a volunteer with the BHS in Cornwall since 2008. I am not surprised that she has been voted by her committee as the first recipient of this award."

The BHS South West Region were very grateful to receive a legacy from the late Robert Sullivan-Tailyour, former South West Regional Chairman. As a long standing volunteer himself, Robert was always very passionate and supportive of the work that volunteers undertook on behalf of the BHS at a local level. In recognition, it was decided by the BHS regional committee that some of Robert's legacy would be used to purchase a perpetual award for each BHS county committee to present to their own Volunteer of the Year, which would be voted for by the committee.
