Charity Founder Receives Prestigious Award

The Witham Hub are proud to announce that our founder, Tina Townsend, has been awarded a Platinum Champion Award by the Royal Voluntary Service as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.

In a message to the trustees she said:

“I am very proud to announce that I have been given the great honour of being the recipient of a Platinum Champion Award from the Royal Voluntary Service as part of the Queen Platinum Jubilee Celebrations. I am truly humbled to have been considered let alone be chosen to be one of the 490 people to receive such a unique award, something that will probably never be repeated. Overwhelmed is an understatement”

“We are so proud of Tina and all she has achieved, she is an inspiration to us all”

Commenting on Tina’s award, Priti Patel, the MP for Witham said:

  1. “Tina has been a strong supporter of the Witham community over many years in ways far too numerous to mention and the fact that the Royal Voluntary Service has recognised her selfless service to our community is wonderful news. This is a prestigious award with Tina having been selected as one of just 490 Platinum Champions out of over 3,000 nominations. I am very proud that she is one of my constituents. My strongest congratulations to her on this special occasion.”
