The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local 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. The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK and is the equivalent of an MBE.

Five charities in Suffolk are celebrating after being named as winners of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The Hour Community, Butley Ferry, Home-Start in Suffolk, Inside Out Community and Success After Stroke are all being recognised for their community work.
