We are absolutely delighted and honoured to announce that Halifax Society for the Blind have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest honour for volunteer groups and the equivalent of an MBE. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers and supporters who have made this possible – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Sue Mort, Chair of HSB said: “We are truly honoured to have received this award. Our volunteers are enthusiastic and determined in providing a variety of support including; supporting group activities, coaching people with new technologies, giving practical advice about sight aids and providing social interaction in a range of settings. Our volunteer trustees have also guided our Charity through the recent tough times, and I’m proud of all of them.”
