Manx charity receives top award

Queen's Award for Voluntary Service is Britain's highest honour for charities

An Isle of Man charity has received the highest award given to volunteer groups in Britain.

The Manx Breast Cancer Support Group is the recipient of the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

The organisation was founded in 2012, and initially raised funds to build a dedicated breast screening unit at Noble's Hospital.

It's current involved in a campaign to raise £1.5m for an upgraded CT Scanner.

The charity says it's thrilled but humbled to have been selected for the award.
