Mellor Country House charity gets Royal recognition
Date: June 3, 2019
Mellor Country House charity that offers holidays for those most in need, has received a Queen’s Awards for Voluntary Service, the equivalent of getting an MBE.
Chair of the charity, Margaret Powell and House Manager, Sharon Adamson, were invited to Buckingham Place to a Royal Garden Party to celebrate their organisation’s achievement.
On receiving the award Margaret Powell said: “We’re really proud to receive this award and it is fantastic recognition for all the time our volunteers give us to ensure this house is welcoming for our guests. As Lord Hallam Tennyson, eldest son of the renowned poet, said at the opening of the house in 1907, he hoped “a blessing would fall on this house of rest which would invigorate not only the flagging pulse but send the light of day into a darkened heart”. Mellor Country House is a very special place and it’s our shared passion for it which drives us, as we can really make a huge difference to people’s lives. It is down to the hard work of our team of volunteers.”
