Royal recognition for Devon’s top volunteer groups

Three Devon volunteer groups receive the Royal seal of approval as they are honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2018.
The Award, the highest given each year to volunteer groups, sets the benchmark for excellence in volunteering and is equivalent in status to the MBE. It recognises and celebrates outstanding achievement by groups of volunteers who regularly devote their time to helping and providing opportunity for others in the community and improving the quality of life.
This year’s winners in Devon are:
• Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services
• Honiton Dementia Action Alliance
• Exeter Red Coat Guides
