2019 celebrations at Headway Guernsey!
Two charities in Guernsey were recognised by The Queen for “outstanding work in their communities”. Headway Guernsey and the Bailiwick of Guernsey Scout Association were selected to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The award is the equivalent of an MBE and is the highest award available to local volunteer groups.
“I’m really delighted that two dynamic and well run local organisations have received the highest national recognition for their service.”
– Vice Admiral Sir Ian Corder, Guernsey’s Lieutenant-Governor.
Executive Director Philippa Stahelin and Chairman Nick Bennett were invited to a Royal garden party at Buckingham Palace in May to celebrate the occasion and in June valued volunteers Lorraine Wrigley and John Henry joined Philippa and Orla-Marie at a reception at Government House where they were given a certificate signed by The Queen and a domed glass crystal, which Guernsey’s Lieutenant-Governor presented to them. The award has been given in recognition of the services provided at Headway Guernsey and the contribution of the wonderful and dedicated volunteers. We could not be more proud! We are so fortunate to have a great team of staff and volunteers and this award is for all of those who contribute to our service! #headwayguernsey #proudofus #celebrate #thankyou
