29 Mar Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
To be nominated they should do work that:
- provides a service and meets a need for people living in the local community
- is supported, recognised and respected by the local community and the people who benefit from it
- is run locally
Volunteer groups should have been running for 3 years or more to be nominated.
Winners get a certificate signed by the Queen and a domed glass crystal. Representatives from the group may also be invited to attend a royal garden party.
We do not yet know if we will receive the award but it was great to be nominated and a lovely evening out generously hosted by the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey.
