Andrew's Honours

Andrew’s fundraising since 2003 and particularly in founding Play2Give has been so successful and the impact so significant that his work has been recognised at many levels. This included a royal seal of approval from the late Queen Elizabeth II with both an MBE in 2021 and an invitation on his 30th birthday to a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace in June 2018.
