Talking About My Generation news team nominated for Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Our newsroom is so excited to bring you the fantastic news that our community reporter team has been put forward for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

It is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK and winners get a certificate signed by the Queen and a domed glass crystal. Representatives from the group may also be invited to attend a royal garden to celebrate their achievements!

Created in 2002 for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, the awards have helped to shine a light on the fantastic work of voluntary groups for many years.

The award means a lot to our reporters, who dedicate their own free time creating brilliant content for our website and social media community, keeping Greater Manchester up to date with all of the great stuff that is happening around the region.

Our team is always out and about conducting interviews or snapping pictures to share, attending local events and profiling interesting people and projects.

When they aren’t out being fantastic roving reporters, they are attending meetings or training sessions with us – they are truly committed!

Bob Alston, our Tameside community reporter, website and magazine designer and editor said: “I have volunteered for TAMG since day one. Not knowing what I had to personally offer, it was quickly evident that over 50s in Greater Manchester needed a more prominent and forthright voice within each area, and all the volunteers bring something unique to the table.

“I continue to be a volunteer, although my initial role has changed somewhat. However, it is obvious to all involved that TAMG now have a wide and varied following that has spread further afield than just the Greater Manchester area.”

The awardees will be announced on 2nd June 2022, coinciding with the Queen’s birthday.
