Duke of Westminster Award - Update
Following an extremely successful selection event in Somerset, the candidates have all returned home and the nine national finalists who will travel to South Africa will be announced on our website (www.cvqo.org) on Tuesday 29 April.
In addition, this year we will be asking for your help as we are creating a new, additional award.
We will be asking YOU to choose a CVQO Regional Ambassador from the 15 candidates who were not announced as the national finalists.
Your vote will be the deciding factor. The lucky winner and a guest will join us at the House of Lords for the prestigious Awards lunch in June.
We will announce more details on how this will work nearer the date.

Good luck to all 24!
