We are really pleased and honoured to have been presented with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2012. The award recognises volunteering work that is a social, economic or environmental service to the local community.

The award citation said: “The Rivertime Boat Trust provides a unique experience for disabled, disadvantaged and needy groups of all kinds from the Thames Valley and further afield along the river. It was founded in 2006 because previously there had been no boat operating for disabled and disadvantaged people on the River Thames between Windsor and Oxford.”

The award was presented to Simon and Pat Davis MBE by the Hon Mrs Mary Baylis JP.
