'They deserve a medal' is something we often say of those wonderful volunteers who have served their organizations and communities outstandingly. Sadly there are too few medals to go around! This is why the League of Mercy Foundation has recently revived a distinguished award that was first given exactly a hundred years ago for voluntary service assisting in the relief of sickness and suffering. If your charity is engaged in work in the areas of care listed and you know of someone who has given marvellous voluntary service over a period of at least seven years, he or she may be nominated for one of up to fifty awards of the League's prestigious Order of Mercy to be made each year. There is no cost to your charity, other than that of a postage stamp or two.
