Carol Ann Lyndon, a retired headteacher from Birmingham, has received a Royal Voluntary Service Platinum Champions Award for her work with the NSPCC.
The Royal Voluntary Service Platinum Champions Awards were launched in honour of Her Majesty the Queen's 70 years of service. After volunteering for Childline for over 15 years, Carol Ann was one of 490 volunteers hand-picked by a judging panel presided over by The Duchess of Cornwall, and crowned Platinum Champions.
Carol has previously won the Star Performer award at our NSPCC People Awards in March for ‘taking a stand’. She was recognised for her work making sure the NSPCC represents every child and young people and turns charity diversity and inclusion into tangible, lasting action.
In 2018, Carol was also awarded an MBE for her services to vulnerable children in the West Midlands.
