The Old Bath House and Community Centre team celebrated the Queens Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Francesca Skelton attended the open day event ‘Taste Of…’ and honoured volunteers with her kind words and commemorative QAVS badges.
Following a royal invitation to the Buckingham Palace Garden Party, the Lord Lieutenant presented the award to recognise the contribution of over 40 volunteers and supporters who maintain the community centre and its projects. The dedicated team give their time, skills and expertise to create a lively community hub. Projects such as MK Community Fridge, a Pop-up Cafe and Family Cook-along sessions have earned The Old Bath House recognition for ‘Serving the community through activities and initiatives that promote wellbeing and bring people together’.
“We are delighted that our dedicated team have received this prestigious award. The Old Bath House is a well- loved venue and this award is recognition of the great work our team contributes to make it such a beneficial resource to Wolverton and all of Milton Keynes”, Chris Bridgman.
The event raised £396.66 for Emily’s Star through taster sessions, a mini market, raffle, pop-up cafe and lots of colourful family fun and music.
