“What a blessing this service has been for me and I’m truly grateful for all the support you have given me.”
On the 2nd June we were able to share the wonderful news that our fantastic volunteers have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. On the 23rd June, in the company of High Peak Mayor Cllr Ollie Cross for Padfield and Mayoress Gill Cross, we gathered for a celebration at Glossop Labour Club.
PCrefurb volunteers have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the highest award a local voluntary group can receive in the UK and is equivalent to an MBE.
“The pandemic has highlighted invisible inequalities and increasing social divides” * not least because it brought into sharp focus the effects of being digitally excluded. This demands a joint effort in response, from local government, charitable organisations and the business community.
Given our experiences globally over the last 12 months, few people would disagree with this statement. But, what happens when accessing the internet isn’t possible as purchasing I.T. equipment isn’t an option? This is when PCrefurb steps in.
