The Princess presented awards to Victim Support volunteers who had been giving up their free time for the charity for more than 15 years.

The Milestone awards were part of Victim Support’s Surrey and Sussex Divisional Volunteer and Staff Conference.

Maralyn Smith, Divisional Manager for Victim Support Surrey and Sussex, said: “Our volunteers do such an amazing job of helping victims and witnesses of crime through a tough time. Having the Princess presenting them with Milestone Awards is such a rewarding way to have their efforts recognised.”
