Volunteers from Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice have been honoured with The Queens Award for Voluntary Service for ‘donating their time, enthusiasm and fundraising.

The Queen’s Award, presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire David Moody, for Voluntary Service is an annual award made to recognise excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community.

Their oldest volunteer 83 year-old Vera Wilkinson said: “I enjoy every minute of working in the shop and know that it is for a really good cause. I’ve worked here since the shop opened, I plan to volunteer for as long as I can.”
