Earlier this week it was revealed the Railworld site had been the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service - the top award available for voluntary organisations.

When that award was announced, Mr Pearce said: "So many people have given their time for free at the Haven, and it just goes to show what you can create when people come together as one."
