The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

What an honour!  The Little Princess Trust was delighted to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (the MBE for volunteer groups) in Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee year, in June 2012.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, (the highest Award given to volunteer groups) which is made annually, recognises and rewards excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.  The Award was given to the Little Princess Trust in recognition of its outstanding achievement in enhancing and improving the quality of life and opportunity for individuals in the community.

“This award is fantastic news as it recognises the enormous contribution which our many volunteers have made to the growth and success of the charity. We have been delighted to see the number of children that we are able to help continue to grow but there is no doubt that we could not achieve this without our many supporters who give up their time so generously,” Tim Wheeler, Chair of Trustees.

When we first set up this charity we could never have imagined how many children we would end up being able to help and how well it would be supported.  It has surpassed all of our expectations and it really does show how great the need is for the Trust to provide this service to children.  I feel so proud to be part of this charity and I am so proud of all of our volunteers.  I only wish that my daughter, Hannah, was here to witness this Award to the Trust set up in her memory.  This Award means so much to me and everyone involved with the charity” – Wendy Tarplee-Morris, co-founder and Trustee.
