Royal recognition for Telford Community Pride Award winners
As recognition of their work in the community, Telford Community Pride Award winners received special certificates from Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra during her visit to Telford today.
The Telford Community Pride Award ceremony, part of Telford’s 50th anniversary year, saw 13 publicly nominated groups and individuals win a variety of categories, recognising the difference they make in their community.
Following a fabulous awards ceremony and fantastic media and public recognition, the award winners were once again in the spotlight when Princess Alexandra visited Telford.
They received special award certificates from Her Royal Highness as part of her visit to Maws Craft Centre and Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron in Ironbridge.
Princess Alexandra is The Queen’s cousin and is well known for her support of over 100 organisations and for acknowledging the contribution of people to various causes and volunteering activities.
The pride awards winners were delighted to receive their certificates from Princess Alexandra.
Cllr Rae Evans, Cabinet Member for Customer Services, Partnerships, Culture and Leisure said: “Princess Alexandra’s visit to Telford really highlights the very strong community we have here, with so many wonderful people who come together and get involved to make our borough such a great place to live in.
“We can never say ‘thank you’ enough, and we are certainly encouraging even more people to join in, whether it’s helping in their environment or making a difference to someone’s life.
“There are so many different opportunities available, and anyone interested can find out more about ways to get involved in volunteering on www.telford.gov.uk/getinvolved.”
