We are very proud to announce that JCI UK has been recognised with The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012.

JCI UK is one of 60 recipients of the award which is the highest standard of recognition given to volunteer groups across the UK and we were recognised for the wide range of initiatives that we have undertaken over the year. This ranges from projects including the launch of a training and apprenticeship academy for young people in Southampton in conjunction with Costa Coffee to the Leadership Excellence in Action Programme that was launched in August, amongst others.

So we want to say THANK YOU to all our members, senators, patrons, corporate supporters and friends! It is those who give their time to make a real difference in the communities in which they live and gain valuable skills and experience along the way that have made this happen!

Special thanks also go to JCI Senator Tracy Viner from the Cathedral Archer Project and Wayne Clark, Managing Director of Best Companies Partnership LLP, who both gave supporting testimonials for the award. Wayne said of JCI UK: "JCI UK is the most inspirational organisation I have ever come across. In my daily work I advise organisations on how they can get more engaged employees, but I've never met a group as engaged as JCI, and this blew my mind."

"The first time I met JCI members I thought they were a crazy bunch to use their Saturday to run and attend a conference. I've come to learn that this is what JCI members do. They spend their free time and holidays to make their communities better and to better themselves in the process."

We are exceptionally proud to have been recognised with The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012. It is an honour to think that JCI UK is one of only 60 organisations the country to win this award! It's a great end to the year!
