We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2018.

It is a fantastic testament to our wonderful volunteer befrienders and all involved with the project, that our work has been recognised in this way. We will be presented with the award in due course.

Queens Award for Voluntary Service 2018

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Independent Committee Chair, former broadcast journalist Sir Martyn Lewis said:

“This year’s record number of Queen’s Award awardees are a powerful testimony to the remarkable achievements and innovative ideas which characterise volunteering in the UK. They prove that, more than ever, volunteers beavering away at grassroots level are the active lifeblood of our communities, identifying all kinds of problems and issues and tackling them with enthusiasm, talent and a high degree of success.”

“The recipients of the Queen’s Award are at the very top of a formidable volunteering movement in the UK involving millions of our citizens, and going from strength to strength.”
