Sir George presented five of the Volunteers at Andover's Cancer Research UK Shop with their long-service medals.
"This shop takes about £2,000 per week - the vast majority of which helps Cancer Research UK with its programme. It is a popular and well-run shop - apart from the one hour when I was working in it a few months ago! It depends on volunteers tokeep it going and I pay tribute to those I met who sort, price, dispaly and sell the goods"
Karn Clark, the new Manager, gave flowers to the medal-winners.
