05 Apr King’s Award for Voluntary Service Workshops
The King’s Award for Voluntary Service celebrates the outstanding work of local volunteer groups across the UK. Groups do not have to be a registered charity and any voluntary organisation with three or more volunteers can be nominated. The award is the equivalent to an MBE and the highest award given to local voluntary groups in the UK, giving Royal recognition to the work they do.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire has been delighted to see so many voluntary groups in the county being awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and would like
to support even more organisations across Shropshire win this award which following the Accession of King Charles III, has now become The King’s Award for Voluntary Service.
To help and encourage voluntary organisations understand the award and the nomination process the Shropshire Lieutenancy will be holding three briefing sessions:
Thursday 11th May 2023 at 4pm – 5pm
Shrewsbury Room, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ND
Tuesday 16th May 2023 at 10.30am – 11.30am
The Baptist Church, Water Lane, Newport, TF10 7LD
Tuesday 13th June 2023 at 7pm – 8pm Via Zoom
We recommend attendance in person at one of the workshops (Newport or Shrewsbury) as this provides an opportunity for members of the Shropshire KAVS panel to look in more detail at the individual volunteer group’s eligibility; the zoom session is added to assist employed trustees who are unable to attend during the working day.
What the recipients say: Joe Lockley, Director of Bright Star Boxing Academy said,
“Winning this award is absolutely amazing for all of the staff and volunteers at ”
Bright Star, it’s great to see the impact we’re having is recognised nationally.
