WVS Volunteers receive Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

Warwickshire Vision Support is proud to announce that its volunteers have received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of the high quality service delivered to our service users. This is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK and is the charity equivalent of an MBE. 

Warwickshire Vision Support’s Volunteers are one of only two successful nominations in the county this year.

On behalf of the service users and staff of Warwickshire Vision Support, we would like to congratulate each and every volunteer on this great honour.
