Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Her Majesty the Queen announced on 2 June that the charity Computer Friendly St Albans has been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the MBE for Volunteer Groups.

In the afternoon Computer Friendly held a special Zoom meeting to celebrate receiving Queen's Award. Over 40 people joined the meeting, including a number of special guests and many Computer Friendly volunteers.

During the meeting Robert Voss, Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, gave information about the Lieutenancy and the Queen's Award. He congratulated Computer Friendly, pointed out what a fantastic achievement it was, and raised a glass (of water) to us.

Penny Williams, Deputy Lieutenant, one of the assessors, added her congratulations and explained how fantastic the achievement was: they had to show that Computer Friendly was exceptional nationwide, not just in Hertfordshire.

Other important guests added their congratulations and ideas for Computer Friendly’s future priorities.
