Honours for NSPCC trustee and volunteer fundraisers
An NSPCC trustee, a 106 year-old fundraiser and an award-winning gardener also recognised in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list.
A staunch NSPCC supporter for over 10 years and a trustee for four, he is Chair of our Income Generation Committee. Andy is awarded an MBE in recognition of his fundraising work.
"This honour is recognition of Andy’s extraordinary dedication to fundraising for over a decade – and the difference that this will have made to the lives of young people who have nowhere else to turn. As a colleague I greatly appreciate his wise and thoughtful counsel, but above all the way he always puts children first."
Neil Berkett, Chair of the NSPCC
A volunteer fundraiser for the NSPCC, with over 50 years of work is awarded an MBE. Anne adapted her fundraising methods during the current crisis because of her need to shield.
"It is truly wonderful news to hear that Anne has been honoured with an MBE. Anne has such spirit and determination that not even a global pandemic would stop her fundraising for her favourite charity. And this year, with the country in lockdown and so many events cancelled, we have needed the support of people like Anne more than ever. We thank Anne from the bottom of our hearts for so many decades of loyal support. Anne is an inspiration to us all, her smile lights up any room and her caring for children everywhere is hugely appreciated."
Caroline Morgan, NSPCC Supporter Fundraising Manager
Award-winning gardener Freda Davis, who has been part of the Bromley Committee since 2007, has been awarded a BEM for “services to the NSPCC and to the community in the London Borough of Bromley”. Freda has run a series of open gardens to raise money for the NSPCC.
"Freda’s open garden events have been very popular over the last 13 years and have helped to raise a staggering amount of money for the NSPCC and other causes. “It’s clear Freda puts her heart and soul into her gardens and it’s amazing that she shares them with everyone, to help children and young people at risk of abuse. Well done Freda – this award is so incredibly well deserved!"
