Local Fundraiser Awarded the British Empire Medal for Services to Child Welfare

Fundraiser and co-founder of the Elche Children’s Care Home, Annette English, has been awarded the British Empire Medal in last week’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.

The BEM was given to her for services to child welfare.

Annette (pictured at last Saturday’s Care Home Summer Ball), with her husband Dave, have been charity fundraisers for the last 13 years, and have spent a lot of their time raising awareness about the home in a bid to improve the lives that the youngsters have there.
