Congratulations to our own Pam Smith who was recently awarded The Queens Award for Voluntary Service for her hard work running the charity shop at The Centre in Newlyn.
The Newlyn Centre was one of only 112 volunteering groups across the UK to be honoured this year.
The Award was created to mark the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2002 and is given for “outstanding achievement by groups of volunteers who regularly devote their time to helping others in the community, improving the quality of life and opportunity for others and providing an outstanding service.”
Well done, Pam. You deserve it!
(The Award is commonly known as the MBE for volunteer groups … should we all curtsey next time we see Pam?)
