Surrey is blessed with thousands of volunteers working unsung in thousand of charities across the County. This evening I attended a reception for the Nominees for the Queen's Awards for Voluntary Service. There were volunteers from 13 charities presenting the wonderful work they do. It was a privilege to meet them all. My photograph is of the Swingbridge Project funded through the Surrey Care Trust which is supported by the High Sheriff Youth Awards. We hope all thirteen charities' nominations are successful.
