Congratulations to The Conservation Volunteer NI who were presented with their Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Award yesterday! They were presented the Award by the Lord Lieutenant for Belfast, Fionnuala Jay-O’Boyle CBE.
The prestigious award is given for exceptional volunteer activity that is making an impact in the community. It is the highest civil Award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It is the MBE for volunteer groups. Any group doing volunteer work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated for the Award.
