It was announced by Buckingham Palace last summer that the Wellingborough based HOPE Project was to receive The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This prestigious award recognises excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in their local community and was awarded to The HOPE Project for the support they have given families and individuals on the deprived Hemmingwell Estate.

The HOPE Project was founded in 2002 and has grown to support local residents through a range of activities including a popular youth club, family support service, music workshop and adult learning. In order to facilitate these activities Morton Wykes Kramer were commissioned in 2009 to refurbish the Hemmingwell Community Centre. Read more about our project on its project page.

The Wellingborough Mayor, Cllr Ken Harrington joined the charity in celebrating its achievement at a formal presentation within the Community Center last November.

We are very pleased to see the Hope group’s hard work gaining the recognition it deserves and have enjoyed the small part we have played in their amazing achievement.

MBE for The Hope Project
