Welcome to Northern Lights!
In 2017 we celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Northern Lights started the celebrations early on 1st December 2016 when we launched the Lapland Challenge and Parkgate Carnival. We are also planning lots of events throughout the year, as a result we hope to have 30 different events. So we need your help with organising and supporting the events. If you would like to organise or help with an event please contact us.
Corporate Sponsors wanted to support a number of events.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services
Buckingham Palace announced on Tuesday 2 June 2015 that Northern Lights were to become recipients of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services (QAVS).
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest award given to local volunteer groups across the UK to recognise outstanding work done in their own communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queen’s coronation. It is the MBE for volunteer groups.
Northern Lights were nominated for our voluntary work in the community since we were founded in 1987. We were assessed by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cheshire representatives on the benefit the charity brings to the local community and its standing within that community.
Please see the following The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service Press Release.
2012 was our 25th anniversary which led to many celebrations as a result we raised £72,274. Consequently we increased awareness with more people than ever knowing all about us. Therefore we can continue our work and take many more children on holidays. Please visit our events calendar to see what is going on. So much went on in 2012 so please take a look at our newsletters.
