Give A Gift honoured with The King’s Award for Voluntary Service.

The King’s Award for Voluntary Service has been awarded to Give a Gift, a charity that Church Pharmacy is proud to support.

Give A Gift supports refugees, asylum seekers and those living in poverty by providing essential items via a culturally-appropriate food hub and short-term financial assistance for people not eligible for public funds. They also offer advocacy and befriending support services, social, leisure and recreational opportunities and assistance with finding accommodation.

Give a Gift has distributed over half a million pounds worth of food and other essential items over the last three years.

Charity Director, and Founder, Rifhat Malik MBE says: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award as it recognises the brilliant contribution our amazing volunteers make to the organisation.

“This recognition reflects the dedication and tireless efforts of our team, volunteers, and supporters and will inspire us to continue our mission of making a positive impact on the most disadvantaged communities.”

“The award comes at a time when we are busier than ever in meeting an unprecedented level of demand due to the cost-of-living crisis but it exemplifies the organisation’s continued dedication to making society a better place for everyone, regardless of their background”

Give A Gift is one of 262 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year. Their work, along with others from across the UK, serves as a reminder of the important contribution volunteers make to their local communities and their impact on improving the lives of those around them.
