We are delighted to have been nominated for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, by not one but two separate organisations, Trawden Parish Council and East Lancs NHS, an honour indeed.
Nominations are put forward by independent individuals or organisations that are aware of the work of the organisation they wish to nominate.
Nominations for 2020 Award have now closed. The assessment process now begins; successful submissions are passed through to the next stage before finally be approved by Her Majesty. Winning nominations are published in the London Gazette on June 2nd the Anniversary of Her Majesty’s Coronation.
As an organisation, we aim to provide services that benefit the whole community, as a group of 15 trustees we would not be able to achieve everything that has been achieved over the past four years without the support, enthusiasm and commitment of the 140 volunteers, working in the shop, library and community centre.
Should be we award the Queens’s Award for Voluntary Service, it will be down to the work of every one of our volunteers. To be nominated is a recognition of all their hard work and commitment to making the vision a reality.
The award is equivalent to the MBE and is the highest award that can be made to a voluntary group
