Humanists of the Year

Every year at our AGM, the Chairman selects a worthy recipient of the Dorset Humanists 'Humanist of the Year' award. This coveted award comes with a framed certificate, a small gift, and immortality in the annals of Dorset Humanists history! We appreciate the contributions and efforts of all our volunteers and supporters, whether or not they have been singled out in this way. Without them, Dorset Humanists would not have enjoyed the success it has over the years.
