West Berkshire Therapy Centre has today been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, just three years after first starting its service.

This pays tribute to the many, excellent individuals who volunteer and help the Centre in a very wide set of roles, ensuring that the service is provided to the highest possible standard.

This follows WBTC receiving a Gold Community Award from Thatcham Town Council last month, recognising its contribution in helping the townspeople of Thatcham.

The Trustees most warmly thank and congratulate all the WBTC volunteers and staff for everything they have done and for their wonderful personal commitment and their teamwork.

The Queen’s Award certificate will be handed to WBTC Trustees and volunteers at an official event later this year.

The Centre, opens for 32 hours each week and is kitted out with Shapemaster power-assisted equipment, supporting disabled people to exercise under safe supervision, helping their walking, balance, ability with tasks of daily living, social involvement and independence. Clients refer for an assessment before using the service, which is funded by voluntary contributions. The Trustees are currently raising funds to develop a hydrotherapy service to meet known local needs.
