Bramber Bakehouse has WON The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2020!
‘The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of The Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.’ https://qavs.culture.gov.uk
This is an incredible achievement for our team of volunteers. What started as a vision and many conversations around a kitchen table has become a fully functioning charity, supporting women survivors of human trafficking.
Many people often assume Bramber Bakehouse is run by full-time paid staff, but in truth the charity has been run by a small army of volunteers since the beginning. Volunteers who have their own full time jobs by day, who have given countless hours over their evenings and weekends to make Bramber Bakehouse a reality.
We are so grateful for this award and are so proud of our team. This award means so much to us and only amplifies our excitement for the future of Bramber Bakehouse!
