Royal Award for Aberdeen Street Pastors

                                                                                                                               Thursday June 18 2020

THE Aberdeen branch of the Christian charity Street Pastors has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The award is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding community work. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation and is the  equivalent of an MBE for volunteer groups.

The award has been made for the Aberdeen Street Pastors’ work in the city centre’s night economy, for retail pastors who work in shopping centres and school pastors who are involved in a local school.

Welcoming the award, Mrs Noel Lord of Aberdeen Street Pastors said: “In all these areas we seek to listen care and help in many different ways.”

She added: “We are grateful to the Church of Scotland especially the Church of Scotland Guild which, over the years, has helped with funding.
