Queen’s Award for Farnham ASSIST
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services
On 2nd June 2017, Farnham ASSIST announced that they had been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services.
This is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK. It is awarded for outstanding achievement by groups who volunteer their own time to enhance and improve the lives of others.
In recognition of the Award, Farnham ASSIST's Manager, June Trantom and the former Manager, Brian Kurton had the honour of attending a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace at the end of May (picture left).
Addressing the many volunteers, June said: “This Award represents all your hard work and support over a prolonged period of time, so very well done and thank you for being a vital part of this recognition. Many congratulations to everyone.“

From here, with the willing help of numerous volunteers, they manage numerous activities around Farnham aimed at the older members of the town's population.
