The Monday Night Club received the highest honour that volunteers can receive, the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, at a presentation ceremony on 24 September.
The Award was presented to the club founder, Laura Gill, by the Hon Lady Morrison, the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire.
The Monday Night Club provides social and sporting opportunities to people with learning disabilities and autism. It was founded by Laura Gill, a young woman with a learning disability and autism, in 2011.
The QAVS was created by The Queen in 2002 to celebrate her Golden Jubilee. It recognises excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community and is the MBE for volunteer groups. This prestigious award represents a tremendous achievement for The Monday Night Club.
