Luctonians Sports Club
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
“Promoting and inspiring sporting and social participation in rural Herefordshire and the surrounding community”
Officially announced in The London Gazette on Sunday 2nd June 2019, Luctonians were one of 261 voluntary groups in the United Kingdom to receive this prestigious award.
Nominations for the award were considered by a panel, following which, in April, The Palace wrote:
“The work your group does for the community was very much admired by the Independent Assessment Committee, chaired by Sir Martyn Lewis CBE, and I am delighted to inform you that your group has been selected as a recipient for The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) 2019. This represents a tremendous achievement for your organisation and we hope that everyone involved, and particularly your volunteers, will feel immensely proud of it.”
Following this, in May, Chairman Simon ‘Sam’ Whiteman, together with Operations Manager, Alex Smith, attended a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

This award is for the Luctonians Sports Club, and therefore belongs to all people involved in whatever sport or aspect of the club, especially our hundreds of volunteers.
Thank You All – Here it is – You’ve Earned it
