AN Aberdeen charity and it’s group of volunteers have been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

We Too!, founded in 2015 by Phionna McInnes, helps families across the North-east affected with predominantly hidden disabilities with their approach to working with organisations to promote relaxed sessions within the area.

We Too! also publishes a free, quarterly magazine which reaches a readership of 31,000 in the local area.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities.

Phionna McInnes, We Too! chief executive, said:  “All our volunteers, known in We Too! as “ninjas”, are absolutely delighted to be recognised with this award.

“Perhaps more so than ever given the increased tasks they have all willingly stepped up to during Covid-19.

“Like many in the third-sector we cannot operate without the value, time and experience they freely give us, and I am incredibly grateful for their time and support”

We Too! is one of 230 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year.
