This prestigious UK National Honour recognises outstanding voluntary contributions and sets the national benchmark for excellence in volunteering, with the work of those awarded being judged to be of the highest standard.
The Allotment Group has received the Award for engaging local marginalised members in a workforce on the allotments.
The Group will receive a certificate signed by The Queen and an exclusive commemorative crystal, presented by Her Majesty’s representative (The Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester) at a special ceremony.
The Group has also received an invitation for representatives to attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in the summer.
