Top volunteer Shelley meets the Queen


Senior Crown Prosecutor Shelley Deutsch was chosen out of 5,500 Victim Support volunteers to meet the Queen recently at a reception to celebrate the 10th annual Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

This is the highest award given to volunteer groups in the United Kingdon and Shelley was chosen because of her long term commitment to improving the lives of scores of victims in the London Borough of Redbridge.

She said:  "It was an absolute honour to meet Her Majesty in the week of her own coronation celebrations and at a time when I was celebrating my own anniversary with Victim Support.

"I realise I was very lucky to have been chosen to represent so many other volunteers who like me, are committed to helping people recover from the effects of crime."
