The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service – The Crescent

Dear all

Earlier in the year we were amazed and truly honoured to have been nominated for the above award by the Bishop of St Albans and we are now very pleased to announce that we have been successful.

The attached press release gives more details on the award which is the highest award a voluntary organisation can receive in the UK, described as the MBE for a voluntary organisation.

None of this would have been possible without your support and of course the hard work and dedication of our team of volunteers. We, on behalf of those we support, would like to thank you all very much and hope that you will continue to support us as we still need your help as much as ever.

More information on the award here QAVS The Crescent Press Release

As ever thank you all for your continued support, we really couldn’t do all we do without you.
