Honour for volunteer NEWSAR team member

Paul Kerr has been awarded the BRITISH EMPIRE MEDAL in recognition of over 25 years valuable service to NEWSAR and for his many other volunteer activities with several organisations in Cheshire. Paul has been an active member of NEWSAR in many operational roles, as well as a long period as our Treasurer, with added responsibilities as a Trustee of the charity.

Paul was keen to point out that he sees this as an award that recognises his contribution within the overall picture of long and valuable service by so many other people he has had the good fortune to volunteer alongside for many years.

Congratulations Paul!
