Dear Pauline Walker, Electric Eels Swimming & Synchro Club for people with Down ’s syndrome

I am writing to inform you that Electric Eels Swimming & Synchro Club for people with Down ’s syndrome was nominated for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2018.
This award was created by The Queen in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, recognising excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.

The work your group does for the community was very much admired by the independent Assessment Committee, chaired by Sir Martyn Lewis CBE and I am delighted to inform you that your group has been selected as a recipient for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) 2018.

The award of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2018 represents a tremendous achievement for your organisation. We hope that everyone involved, and particularly your volunteers, feel immensely proud of the recognition that this Award represents.
