A volunteer at RSPB Bempton Cliffs has been recognised for his service. Allan Dawson received the prestigious RSPB President’s Award at a ceremony in London recently.

During the charity’s 124th Annual General Meeting at the QEII Centre in Westminster, Allan received his award from the current RSPB President, television presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff.

Bempton Cliffs manager, Keith Clarkson, said: “Allan is a worthy winner. He’s dedicated, conscientious and his knowledge of everything ‘Bempton’ is second to none. In fact, if we don’t know the answer to a question, the second best answer is ‘Ask Allan’. He’s a real asset to the reserve and a lovely bloke.”
