Service user receives Queens Award

Tamworth local, Alison Hadley, has had her volunteering recognised with a Queen’s Award. Alison began volunteering for the Community Together CIC programme six years ago. The initiative provides free activities for people in the local community.

Her dedication to volunteering in the Community Together CIC’s café and her involvement in the community was recognised as a great achievement and she was presented with The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Badge and a Certificate by The Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Ian Dudson CBE.

The café, which is predominantly frequented by people with learning disabilities, is opening a new hub in the Tamworth castle grounds where the award ceremony took place.

Michele Runcorn, Locality Manager at Alison’s service, said: “Staff have always supported Alison with her involvement in the community and she has been a dedicated volunteer for the Community Together CIC programme since she first started. She absolutely loves the work she does and was delighted to be presented with the Award.”

Everyone at Walsingham would like to say a massive congratulations to Alison for all of her dedication and hard work.
