Queens' Award For Voluntary Service
This is the highest award given to voluntary organizations. Organizations must be led and run by volunteers and it is a recognition of the invaluable service that community & voluntary organizations make to the common good.
Organizations are nominated by local people and local people sit on the panel who decide who merits and award which is then passed on to the Queen for approval.
Because local people play a part in the award, we at BJP are doubly proud to receive the award.
