Do you know of a volunteer group that devotes it’s time to helping others and deserves recognition? The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to volunteer groups – the equivalent to an MBE.
This year there were 111 outstanding from all across the UK. They include the Bassetlaw Action Centre, which promotes the independence of older and vulnerable people throughout Bassetlaw district, and Netherfield Forum, which assists with the relief of poverty and the provision of youth, educational and recreational activities within the community.
Go to https://qavs.direct.gov.uk/ and submit your nomination by 30 September 2014 to make sure they are considered for an award next year.
Entry is free but please note that groups cannot nominate themselves. Guidance notes can be found at https://qavs.direct.gov.uk/guidance-notes. The winners are announced on 2 June each year and will receive a domed glass crystal and a certificate signed by the Queen.
