Volunteer's Queen's Award


Hundreds of volunteers who selflessly give up their time to work for Derby Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust were recognised with a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services in 2016.

The group of more than 500 volunteers were personally approved by Her Majesty the Queen to receive the award, which is known as the MBE for volunteer groups. The award recognised the great impact and contribution which the group makes in the way they support the Trust and the wider community.

Volunteer Mary Payne and Jackie Marriott, Assistant Head of Facilities, were invited to the Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace as recognition for the Trust’s achievement.
