Roy Taylor, a volunteer at sheltered housing complex, the Abbeyfield Fareham Society in East Street, has received the prestigious award for his services at Abbeyfield’s 2016 Royal Patron’s awards.
Mr Taylor was one of just seven people from 10,500 volunteers to pick up the award at a special ceremony in Manchester.
The Prince of Wales has previously endorsed the awards.
Roy is known as a driving force within Abbeyfield Fareham and is said to always find a way to fund projects over the years which have benefited both the residents and visitors.
He has also introduced a ‘potting shed initiative.’
