Queen's Award Presented to Swingbridge Volunteers

Surrey care Trust CEO, Elaine Tisdall, explained that since the commissioning of the first boat, some 93,000 hours of volunteer activity have been provided to help support the wide range of clients – what a magnificent contribution to our community!
