AYME VOLUNTEERS WIN THE QUEENS DIAMOND JUBILEE AWARD

AYME is one of sixty organisations to be awarded the prestigious Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012.

The Cabinet Office and Buckingham Palace said AYME has been chosen for harnessing the hard work, commitment and generosity of volunteers to improve the lives of children and young people struck down by the chronic debilitating condition ME/CFS.

Mary-Jane Willows, CEO of the Association of Young People with ME said: "We are absolutely delighted to have won The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012 in recognition of the amazing contribution that our volunteers make to AYME. Hopefully this prestigious honour goes some way in recognising the excellent job that they do; they really are an intrinsic and valued part of our charity."

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012 was announced to commemorate Her Majesty's sixty-year reign by recognising voluntary groups that operate across the UK or in the one of the four home nations.
