Guernsey Voluntary Service Awards
The GVS operates in so many areas across the island in its services for older people, helping to give them regular contact with their peer group and keeping them engaged with the island community.
The Long Service Award Scheme is based on a completion of 12 duties of 2 hours duration per year and runs from a Bronze Award with 10 years of service and a minimum of 120 duties through to the impressive Platinum Awards with 30 years of service with a minimum of 360 duties.
Lady Corder was presenting Platinum Awards that evening to Lady Bridget Carey and Mrs Lesley Perchard. Alongside 12 Gold Awards. 6 Silver awards and 8 Bronze Certificates.
Such incredible dedication deserves recognition and Government House was pleased to be able to show appreciation for everything they do for the service.
