Langley Chaplain Awarded Medal in Queen’s New Year’s Honours List

Published 14th January 2022

We are so proud to share that Pamela Tolhurst – chaplain at The Shrubbery and Kent Resettlement Project and leader of Gillingham United Reformed Church – has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for her services to her local community in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List 2022.

Motivated by her faith, Pam works in a voluntary capacity across the board as she seeks to serve the people in her local community in Kent. In her role as chaplain Pam is a great support to our clients and staff as she seeks to build relationships, encourage and support wherever she can.

“My role as chaplain is a huge privilege and enables me to get alongside the clients and the staff … providing a listening ear and just being there for people, to encourage them on what they’re doing every day.” Pam Tolhurst

We caught up with Pam over Zoom and asked what it meant for her to receive this award:
