Nottingham Forest’s charity partners Age UK Notts have been recognised with the 2015 Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The accolade is the highest a voluntary group can receive in the UK and comes as a result of the charity’s work to help older people in a number of ways, from offering a regular visiting service to those who are lonely to giving free, confidential and impartial support on financial and legal matters.
Age UK Notts were invited to a garden party at Buckingham Palace, which was attended by the Queen and other winners of the award.
