The Swan Sanctuary is very pleased to be able to announce it has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This award is given to groups which are run chiefly by volunteers and provides a service which meets the needs of people living in a local community. It is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK so we are very proud to have been selected for the honour. We have many volunteers who give their time and effort freely to The Swan Sanctuary without expecting anything in return apart from the satisfaction of helping our wildlife. We are delighted that all our volunteers have been recognised in this way, it is well deserved.
