This photo shows one of our long-time friends and service-users, Alan Bell, receiving his MBE award at Buckingham Palace in 2007. He was given the accolade for his amazing charity fundraising: over the course of around ten years of dedicated charity collecting at supermarkets and flag days, Alan raised over £100,000 which was distributed among six different charities. We are very proud of the work he did, and proud to have him as a dear friend of the Befrienders Ministry, Whitewell.
