Volunteers from Roundabout, the Evesham furniture reuse charity, were presented with the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) at a ceremony held at the Roundabout premises on 19 July 2019.
The Lord-Lieutenant, Lt Col Patrick Holcroft LVO OBE, presented Roundabout with the QAVS in recognition of the volunteers dedication and commitment over 25 years.
Roundabout Manager Peter Andrews said: "Roundabout is immensely proud to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of the hard work of our volunteers and staff, without whom we simply could not provide the range of services for those in financial need. We would like to thank all those who have supported us over the past 25 years by donating reusable furniture items and we look forward to the next 25 years."
The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation and is equivalent to an MBE for volunteer groups.
Any group doing voluntary work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated for the award. Each group is assessed on the benefit they bring to the local community. For further details visit the QAVS website.
