ROYAL RECOGNITION: Man from Pinner receives Queens Award for Voluntary Service

 Published on: 3rd December 2021   |   By: Amy Pollard   |   Category: Uncategorized

A man from Pinner has been awarded for his contribution to a charity that supports children with neuro disabilities.

Reshad Saraj, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, is a team leader at PACE Charitable Trust, a charity that transforms the lives of children and young people with neuro disabilities.

He was recognised for his work during the pandemic in hosting a number of online videoconferencing support forums with members of PACE. Reshad received a certificate of Recognition, an engraved glass paperweight Award and a Special Recognition Badge for his contribution to PACE, which has received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award and the MBE for volunteer groups.

Reshad said: “It’s a great honour for PACE to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and a well deserved one following all the hard work the PACE team have put in to support its members especially during the last year or two, where face to face contact has been so limited.”

He continued: “I am proud of the contribution I have made including leading a number of online forums supporting the members during these very difficult times and equally proud of my fellow Team Leaders and volunteers who have given and continue to give so much of their time and energy in supporting PACE.”
