The Eccleshall Community First Responders have been awarded the 2017 Queens Award for Voluntary Services
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation.
This award is the equivalent of the MBE for voluntary groups and has been awarded to Eccleshall CFRs for their work in “Providing emergency medical aid, training and lifesaving equipment to those living and working in the local community”
Group Coordinator, Martin Watson, said;
“We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have been given this award. It is clearly a testament to the efforts of all those involved in Eccleshall Community First Responders, who voluntarily give their time to support the group either as a responder helping those in need of medical aid or as fund-raiser.”
