The 44th Nottingham Boys’ Brigade and 45th Nottingham, based at Clifton Methodist Church and Holy Trinity Church respectively, have been awarded the Lord-Lieutenant’s Award for Promoting Voluntary Service.
They were presented with their awards by the Lord-Lieutenant Sir John Peace at his summer reception at his home The Manor in Caunton.
The award was because of work they have done and are currently doing in their local community ranging from litter picking, collecting items for food banks, volunteering in their local companies and local community events, as well as collecting bedding and towels for the RSPCA in Radcliffe.
Harry Arnold (44th Nottm) and Tjay Sanderson (45th Nottm), along with two other young people, attended the summer reception along with six other organisations from Nottinghamshire and they were presented with a plaque and certificate that explains that the award is granted for a period of three years.
This is the inaugural Lord-Lieutenant award and it was supported by Veolia Nottinghamshire.
The awards have been introduced by the Lord-Lieutenant Sir John Peace to help recognise localorganisations’ outstanding service to their communities and the significant benefit this makes to the lives of others.
Lord-Lieutenant Sir John Peace said:“I was delighted to hear about the outstanding voluntary work being done by young people across the county and this award is an opportunity to thank them and the organisations that support them. Voluntary service has a bright future in Nottinghamshire.”
Victoria Thacker from Veolia Nottinghamshire said: “We are proud to support the wonderful voluntary work that takes place across Nottinghamshire, congratulations to all those awarded.
