GB News, Alastair Stewart met Nina Parnell, to hear more about The Queen's Award winning Neighbourhood Friends volunteers.

In June 2021, Westbank Neighbourhood Friends volunteers, who are based in Devon, were honoured with The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.

Westbank Neighbourhood Friends help vulnerable or frail people aged 18 and over from Exeter, East and Mid Devon to stay out of hospital or to have shorter hospital stays. The service simply matches volunteers who want to help with people who need assistance on their onward journey from hospital.
