The Queen's Award presentation

The Queen's Award presentation

By Ericka Hill - Fundraiser 

Wednesday 20th December 2017 

What a year! Not only did we celebrate 50+ years but we were honoured to receive notice that we had been awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. 

How excited were we to recieve the award at a special presentation hosted by the Lord Mayor Cllr Anne Murphy in the beautiful Sheffield Town Hall reception rooms.

All our wonderful volunteers were given a special invitation to attend the presentation by the Lord-Liuetenant Andrew J Coombe and it was an ideal opportunity for us to say THANK YOU for all their hard work with an afternoon tea.

2017 saw 81 volunteers giving over 7,000 hours of their free time to help us combat isolation and loneliness amongst our older generations in Sheffield. 

Over 70 people attended the presentation including volunteers, their guests, some service users, staff members and trustees. Special Queen's Award pin badges were commissioned and each volunteer was given one as they left the event.
