PACE is awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
PACE is delighted to announce that it has been honoured with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
This is the highest Award a voluntary group can receive in the UK, the equivalent of an MBE for charities and social enterprises.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognize outstanding work by volunteer groups for the benefit of their communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate The Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Recipients are announced each year on 2nd June, the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation. This year, PACE is one of 241 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive this prestigious award.
Krishna Birdy, Founder of PACE said…
We are absolutely delighted and honoured to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, a tribute to all our volunteers who have supported PACE through the years. It is this support that has provided opportunities for our members, enabling them to change their lives which in turn has had a positive knock-on effect on their families. Our volunteers are the backbone of the club and receiving this Award is much deserved recognition for them. Even through these difficult times, our volunteers have continually supported the emotional and physical well-being of our members. We are all immensely proud of our volunteers and to receive this Award.
