Cornwall has a proud heritage of volunteering, with an estimated 140,000 volunteers giving up their time for others. These hours alone contribute over £400M to the economy in Cornwall.
Cornwall VSF is delighted to see so many names from our membership on the nominations list for the King’s Award this year.
Recipients for a 2023 award included:
- DISC Newquay
- First Light South West
- Pegasus Men’s Wellbeing Centre;
- St Blazey Recycle, Reuse, Resale CIC

Previously known as The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the Award has been shining a light on the fantastic work of voluntary groups from across the UK for many years.
Equivalent to an MBE, The King’s Award for Voluntary Service is awarded for life.
