Highest Honour awarded to

Coffee Pot Memory Cafe

It was announced in November that His Majesty King Charles III has approved The King’s Award for Voluntary Service National Assessment Committee’s recommendation that the Volunteers of the Coffee Pot Memory Café, Drighlington Methodist Church should receive The King’s Award for Voluntary Service (KAVS) 2023.

Equivalent to an MBE, KAVS is the highest award given to local voluntary groups in the UK, and they are awarded for life to celebrate the outstanding work of local volunteer groups across the UK. They are awarded to groups that are truly outstanding and making a big difference to their local community; groups that have the highest standards in everything they do and where volunteers, rather than paid staff, are in the driving seat.

Group leader Trevor Martin says “This represents a tremendous achievement by our group’s amazing volunteers, The Methodist Church and the village of Drighlington. We feel immensely proud to be honoured with this award and will continue to support all people living with Dementia, giving them a safe, enjoyable and friendly place to meet and have fun.”
