Honiton-based charity recognised for its outstanding and valuable service to the community.
A popular local charity has received the Lord Mayor’s Commendation in recognition of its outstanding and valuable service to the community.
Honiton-based Devon Freewheelers, which transports important medical supplies such as blood and breast milk to NHS hospitals, received the accolade from The Right Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Exeter Rob Newby.
Devon Freewheelers founder Daniel Lavery said: “I’d like to thank the people of Exeter and Lord Mayor for this truly special award. I dedicate it to all the volunteers within Devon Freewheelers who serve their loyal community daily.”
The award hadn’t been issued by a Lord Mayor for nearly a decade, so it was a special moment for the Lord Mayor himself.
“The people in this charity are the true unsung heroes of our community,” he said. “Everyone needs to be more aware of Devon Freewheelers, its volunteers and what they do for all of us.
