The Coast Rescue Service as been awarded the Queens Diamond Jubilee Award for Voluntary work.
This is a special one-off category of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, and has been awarded this year to just 60 national organisations. The Award is recognition by the Her Majesty The Queen of the organisation's involvement in volunteering in the UK. The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service was established in 2002 as part of the national honours system and is considered to be the MBE for community voluntary groups. Whilst the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service recognises the work of grassroots organisations at a local level, the Diamond Jubilee category is particularly special as it is awarded to recognise national organisations.
Peter Dymond OBE. acting Chief Coasatguard said
'I am delighted that the Coastguard Rescue Service has received this award and that the contribution made by everyone in the Coastguard Rescue Service been officially recognised in this way. It is a huge honour for the Coastguard Rescue Service.'
All of us at Wyke Regis Coast Rescue Team are very proud and honoured to be recipients and part of this award.
The team also congratulate the RNLI and all at Weymouth Lifeboat as they too are worthy recipients of this award.
