Four new Street Angels for Guildford and celebration of receiving The Queens Award for Voluntary Services
Welcome to the four of the new Guildford Street Angels commissioned tonight (Sunday 18th October - pictured below) on behalf of the church and wider community of Guildford. Guildford Street Angels are also celebrating receiving The Queens Award for Voluntary Services. This award, equivalent to the MBE for community groups, was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen's coronation. Any group doing volunteer work that provides a social, economic or environmental service to the local community can be nominated for the award. Each group is assessed on the benefit it brings to the local community and its standing within that community. The evening was attended by: The Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Nikki Nelson-Smith; Anne Milton MP; the Western Division Commander for Surrey Police, Helen Collins; alongside all that being awarded with the Queens Award for Voluntary Services.
