The Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation (IHWO) in Northampton are absolutely thrilled to announce that they are proud recipients of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2021; the highest award given to voluntary sector organisations in the UK. The organisation’s volunteers are ecstatic and honoured to be recognised for over 25 years of their hard work.

The award has been given to IHWO in recognition of their outstanding efforts ‘to enrich the lives of Hindus and wider communities by meeting their social, cultural, educational and wellbeing needs’. Representatives of IHWO will receive the award crystal and certificate from Mr James Saunders Watson, Lord-Lieutenant of Northamptonshire later this summer. Two volunteers from IHWO will also attend a garden party at Buckingham Palace in May 2022.

Neelam Aggarwal-Singh MBE DL JP, Chairperson of IHWO says: “We are absolutely delighted that the hard work of our fantastic team has been recognised. This is a huge honour and we as an organisation are so excited. This is an award that is given to volunteers who are truly exceptional in their impact and I can proudly say that our team is sincerely dedicated to serving the needs of the community. Acknowledgement of that commitment always feels great.”

IHWO is a thriving, dynamic voluntary organisation that enriches the lives of the local community. They are well-known for lighting up Northampton town with their annual Diwali celebrations and their pinnacle project is a multi-million pound initiative to build a Hindu Temple and Community Centre in Northampton.
