We are delighted to announce that the Corps is one of the 2021 winners of the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The award recognises outstanding community work among local volunteer groups across the UK.
During the past year, members of the Corps’ have contributed over 1,000 days in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our volunteers have taken time out from their jobs and family commitments to support organisations including the National Emergencies Trust, Nightingale Hospital London, the Royal London Hospital, City of London Police, and three London Coroners.
The Commanding Officer of the Corps, Commandant Philippa Lorimer MBE, commented: "We are honoured to receive this award in recognition of our past and present volunteers’ dedication. The Corps does extraordinary work in times of crisis and we have been heavily involved in London's pandemic response. It is wonderful that the Corps’ work has been acknowledged with such a prestigious accolade.”
