Trustee receives Platinum Champions Award for volunteering
Trustee Luke Tester has been recognised with a Platinum Champions Award, for his work volunteering with Together Co and St John Ambulance.
The A&E doctor gives more than a thousand hours of his time to volunteering a year.
Luke, 27, was told about the award by BBC One Show presenter Matt Allwright, while volunteering with St John Ambulance at the Amex Stadium, Brighton.
The Royal Voluntary Service established the Platinum Champions Awards in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s 70 years of service.
The Duchess of Cornwall presented Luke with his award at a Big Jubilee Lunch at the Oval, London, on June 5.
Luke said “It’s an enormous privilege to be recognised as a Platinum Champion for the jubilee.
“I take great pride in working with the wonderful team at Together Co and helping to tackle loneliness, and was not expecting anything like this.
“But, I’m delighted to receive the award.
“Volunteering is part of the core within our society and I can’t wait to meet other champions at The Big Jubilee Lunch.”
