BURNFOOT Community Association has received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.
The presentation took place at a special reception in Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre in Limavady on Thursday, September 28, hosted by the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird OBE.
The award is the highest honour which can be bestowed on volunteer groups across the UK.
Speaking after the reception, the Mayor said: "Burnfoot Community Association has been improving community life for over two decades and it is a very worthy recipient of this award.
“I was honoured to be a part of today's event and it was clear to see just how much this recognition means to those involved.
“The Association should be commended for all it has achieved so far, creating an important community space for those who live in the village and surrounding rural areas. Volunteers have made an immeasurable contribution to community life, and I would like to offer my sincere congratulation to the group's committee members on all they have achieved so far."
