Milton Keynes: Indian community-run charity receives prestigious UK Queen’s Award


HYDERABAD: The prestigious Queen’s Award for Volunteer Service was presented to the Indian charity “DreamSai” in England, Milton Keynes.
Countess Howe, Lord Lieutenant to Her Majesty of Buckinghamshire presented the award and a certificate signed by Her Majesty The Queen to DreamSai. The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, the Deputy Lord Lieutenants, the Mayor of Milton Keynes, councilors, charitable partners, volunteers from religious organizations and a wide range of guests attended the celebration on October 16.
Laxman Kastala, founder and chairman of the charity, said they had humble beginnings four years ago with just a handful of people, but now there are more than 150 dedicated volunteers.
“As an inclusive group, the charity very quickly developed positive partnerships with many other national and local organizations to collaborate and provide joint services to broaden reach and impact while minimizing duplication,” did he declare.
In 2002, it was decided by Her Majesty that there should be a new award to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of his accession to the Throne in 1952. The award is given for outstanding achievement by organizations in the United Kingdom that give of their time to improve and improve the quality of life and opportunities of individuals or other groups in the community.
Countess Howe in her speech said that over the past three years, the association has been able to respond quickly to gaps in the provisions for vulnerable people in the town of Milton Keynes. “With the start of the Covid 19 pandemic, they immediately created new effective projects to reach and support people in need, all done only by volunteers,” she said.
