Elaine Horton MBE

Elaine Receives Her Award

Elaine Horton , President of Jalon Valley Help and member of our U3A visited Buckingham Palace last Thursday to receive her well deserved MBE from Prince Charles, for services to the expat community.

The process started a year ago when an application was made to the British Consulate for the Palace to recognise the hard work and dedication to the welfare and support of our community. After what appeared to be a long waiting time the announcement came in the New Years Honours List.

Elaine has always said that this was recognition not just for her but for the charity and it's hardworking volunteers.

Congratulations and best wishes from all U3A members.
