Volunteers from Fairwood Helpers, receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service from Surrey’s Lord-Lieutenant

Volunteers from Fairwood Helpers, the Worplesdon-based group launched in 1998 to provide much-needed transport plus community support and befriending for elderly and isolated people, received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service from Surrey’s Lord-Lieutenant, Michael More-Molyneux.

Chairman of Fairwood Helpers, Sue Harris, thanked the founder members of Fairwood Helpers in its 20th anniversary year and the current volunteers who contribute so much. Many of those who benefit from the service were invited to the presentation, together with the 40 volunteers themselves.
