WOW my daughter fox20thc is an MBE!

Recommended Posts

Well done.

 

Now, I'll ask a question a few others have to no avail.

 

What did you do to be awarded this?

 

The information you're looking for is readily available in the thread; the MBE is for the voluntary work Fox did helping her community through the flooding last year (despite being flooded out herself).

Well done Foxy! Congratulations, you deserve it.

 

I have always slightly regretted my mums socialist principles as when she received a letter asking her if she would accept an invitiation to the palace (you are not allowed to refuse the actual invitation as it is an order, so they ask if you would accept it first before sending it) she said she wouldn't accept :(

I don't know about other awards from the Royals, but I DO know that if you have an MBE, you can request permission to be married in the chapel below St Paul's Cathedral.......

 

......nice little bit of info there.... :hihi:

Yes but what did she do?, I rode my bike all around delivering food and blankets to family and friends who were stuck in traffic and flowing water for hours . I travelled through some of the fastest waters and risked my life to help others.

I waded through water neck deep to carry 3 school kids (1 at a time)who were stuck down wooleywood bottom bridge, and I never asked anyone for money to repair my bike when it got flooded.

But then again if you ask enough people to give money to those who didnt have insurance you are sure to get an MBE

She begged and begged for those on Win gardens who would rather buy a big TV than go out to work and pay for house insurance:loopy:

Insurance is not always that easy to get to be honest. We moved into a new build a year ago, but because its a new post code it hasn't got onto everybody's system yet....so that causes a problem.

Another problem is they ask what the construction of the roof is even though it's only content cover we were looking for.:huh:....I don't know.:confused:

Anyway, most people come across as thinking Foxy's award was well deserved and how nice to see an ordinary person getting recognition for helping fellow human beings and not a pop star or footballer or someone that's getting a damn good payout anyway.:thumbsup:

Might I just add:

 

Contrary to the report in the local press regarding the award. It was NOT for work done as a result of the floods last year.

 

The citation says: For services to the Sheffield Community end of, yes I did help out during the floods but any recognition was not as a direct result of it, but also for voluntary work I have done over a number of years.

 

Anyway, I'd hate for this to become a nasty tit for tat thread so thanks to all those kinds well wishers :) I'll ask that it be closed now.
