I am slightly late posting this but the co-founder of the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust Beverley De Gale has been awarded with an OBE. Congratulations to her and her family and the ACLT that do an amazing job. I am sure her belated son Daniel,who inspired this charity would have been proud. ACLT recently overcame a funding shortfall without government help. So any recognition they receive they have earned it.
The below excerpt is from the charities website:
