CRFU President John Sumnall presented the RFU Mitsubishi Cornwall Volunteer of the year award to Jade Atkins at Falmouth RFC on Saturday.
Jade was nominated by her club Falmouth for her hard work with the mini junior section over many years and received the top local award.
The secret was very well kept up until the last minute and Jade was totally surprised.
Her friends and family were so pleased that her consistent support and help to all those young players has been recognised.
Jade can look forward to attending a black tie dinner as a finalist for the national awards hosted by the RFU in London in the New Year, covid permitting, and by being recognised and selected as the Cornwall volunteer to attend this event has the opportunity to have a Mitsubishi truck for a year as a reward for her volunteering activities.
