One of Havering's longest-serving hospital volunteers has been recognised for her work by the Mayor of London at an awards ceremony.
Beverly Stroud, from Hornchurch, has worked as a volunteer for Bedrock hospital radio, broadcast from Queen’s Hospital, for 30 years and was presented with a longest service award at the Team London Awards, in City Hall, on Monday.
The awards are a part of Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s volunteering scheme, Team London, and recognise the work of people who help to make the city’s communities stronger and more cohesive.
“It’s very important that we recognise those who go above and beyond their call of duty to make London a better place,” said the mayor. I’ve been really pleased to meet some of the city’s top volunteering stars at the Team London Awards.”
Dame Barbara Windsor, an ambassador for Team London, presented Violet with her award and said she was “delighted to be able to meet so many worthy recipients” at the ceremony.
