The Long Service Award

For all our exceptional long-serving volunteers.

About this award

At Macmillan we reward all our exceptional long-serving volunteers, celebrating the effort and commitment they’ve shown over many years. The Long Service Award is open to both individuals and groups, so that all our volunteers can be recognised for their ongoing commitment and team work.


Individual volunteers and groups of volunteers can be awarded for the following lengths of service:

5 years30 years
10 years40 years
15 years50 years
20 years60 years
25 years


This category of award is particularly dependent on the nominations of volunteer colleagues – if you know of a volunteer reaching a milestone, please do submit a nomination. All you need is their name, the region they volunteer in, and how long they’ve been volunteering.

This year, 446 volunteers were presented with Long Service Awards locally for milestones between 5 and 50 years. 


For 50 years of service to Macmillan we awarded:

Joan McAdoo - Northern Ireland 

Leslie McAdoo - Northern Ireland 

Ballyclare Fundraising Group - Northern Ireland 

March and Chatteris Committee - South East of England
