Ballymoney RBL Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service recognised
The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has made a special presentation to the Ballymoney branch of the Royal British Legion in recognition of its Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
Ballymoney RBL received the honour for its commitment to supporting ex-service personnel and the local community in the Ballymoney area, helping to prevent social isolation and promoting cross-community integration.
Alderman Mark Fielding met with representatives recently to present the token of congratulations.
He said: “The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest official award of its kind in the UK and it is a testament to the Branch’s commitment to helping others.
“2021 marks the centenary of the Royal British Legion so I was pleased to have this opportunity to recognise its members and volunteers during this significant year in its history.”

Also recognised was Bobbie Davis who received a certificate of recognition for his commitment to the Poppy Appeal.
