Acts of Kindness presented with Queen’s Award

Acts of Kindness, a charitable organisation offering support to communities across the Solent region, has been honoured with the 'Queen's Award for Voluntary Service' in Fareham this week.

The Queen’s Award is the highest accolade for voluntary groups in the UK and was bestowed to Acts of Kindness for their tireless dedication to helping people in crisis.

Volunteers from Acts of Kindness were presented with their award on Tuesday 5 July, by HM Lord-Lieutenant, Nigel Atkinson Esq, at the Civic Offices in Fareham.

They were joined by The Mayor and Mayoress of Fareham, the Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, and the Deputy Lieutenant Geoff Holt MBE.

Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Mike Ford commented: “I cannot think of a group more deserving of this prestigious award. Whether they are providing food for people struggling to feed themselves or their families, helping those who have lost everything to fire, or organising projects to help the wider community, Acts of Kindness volunteers help in any way they can. They are truly an inspiration, and I was honoured to host this presentation event for them.”

HM Lord-Lieutenant, Nigel Atkinson Esq added: “The Queen’s Award is the equivalent to an MBE and the highest award given to local voluntary groups in the UK. They are awarded for life with royal approval.  Acts of Kindness have proven that they are deserving of this honour through the many ways in which its committed volunteers work to make things better for their local community as well as individuals who are struggling.”
