Worcestershire treasurer up for second top volunteers award

Bernard Speakman, treasurer of the Worcestershire ME Group, will be at Buckingham Palace tomorrow (November 27) to attend the Victim Support Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony hosted by the Princess Royal.

Mr Speakman has been short-listed for the award for his work with Victim Support at their Redditch office.

He collected a similar award in 2002 from Citizens Advice, when he worked at the town’s Citizens Advice Bureau. He has been praised on both occasions for the way he fits his voluntary duties round his ME.
