Every Canteen Hero nomination we received spoke about people with boundless commitment to their club, the canteen and their broader community.
Selecting a list of finalists, let alone a winner, from the stories about all these amazing people is extremely difficult. Every one of these volunteers deserves recognition and celebrating.
We congratulate everyone who was nominated – you are truly a hero to the people around you. Nevertheless, we have selected our eight finalists for the Canteen Hero of the Year for 2022. Congratulations!
