MLSS Scunthorpe has been given the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.
We are delighted to announce that our Scunthorpe has been given the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.
Members of our organisation can be found handing out hot meals to homeless and vulnerable people every Thursday at 6pm on Britannia Corner.
Now, the charity has become one of just 17 nationally to have received the award this year and has also been nominated for a Pride of Britain award. The organisation's Scunthorpe co-ordinator Sunny Singh said: "This is an extremely proud moment for all of the MLSS team and volunteers. It's very important that the service provided continues as we approach the winter season."
The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the country to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created to celebrate the Queen's golden jubilee in 2002 and is the equivalent of an MBE for voluntary groups. The Midland Langar Seva Society has received its award for "providing hunger relief, street feeds and aid in accordance with teachings of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Ji."
