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 own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
Any group doing volunteer 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 it brings to the local community and its standing within that community.
Limbcare’s Chairman has stated “I am so proud and honored to head this wonderful charity and thank everyone who has been involved with Limbcare from the bottom of my heart”.
Limbcare also said: “We feel extremely humbled by receiving this award. We would like to thank everyone what’s has given up their time to help and support Limbcare from day 1 in 2010 . This is your award. Thank you you everyone.”
