Queen’s birthday honour list

The list showcases 414 exceptional contributions of unsung heroes in all four nations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is the most ethnically diverse list to date, with 13% of recipients from a minority ethnic background.

72% of the awards go to those who have worked tirelessly for their local community. This reflects the huge voluntary effort across the country in response to COVID-19, with recipients cumulatively supplying millions of free meals to those shielding, delivering care packages to NHS frontline workers and clocking up countless voluntary hours to support those at risk.

One of the recipients of the award is Footballer Marcus Rashford who receives an MBE for services to vulnerable children in the UK during Covid-19.
Also  Amelia Collins-Patel from Thurnby Leicester  has been awarded an MBE for voluntary services to Children and Young People in the community during Covid-19.
