A volunteer has received an award after dedicating more than 13 years of her life to a conservation charity.
Pam Farley, 87, who volunteers at the St Albans-based charity Woodland Trust, was presented with the Juniper Award at the annual Volunteer of the Year awards ceremony in the Belton Woods Hotel, Grantham.
The ceremony is organised by the charity and it recognises the hard work of the people who help them.
Pam has been a volunteer for more than 13 years and received the award for her contribution to the Talking Trees project which involves speaking to people about woods and trees.
In that time, she has delivered 255 talks and raised more than £10,600 for the trust with her work in saving ancient woodland.
