An MBE for Allister Carey
"The Eleanor Foundation was created in August 2012 following the tragic death of Eleanor Carey at the age of 22 in December 2011 whilst cycling in London. She had been studying International Development at London Metropolitan University. Ellie believed strongly in the importance of sustainable development and had a particular interest in water, sanitation and hygiene issues. The Foundation was therefore established by her family and friends with a view to addressing the issues that were of such importance to her."
Allister Carey was made an MBE for his services to sustainable development in Africa in the New Year's Honour's List and opted to have his medal presented in Guernsey by the Lieutenant-Governor in order to share the occasion with his family, friends and colleagues who he thanked for their ongoing support and dedication to the work.
It was a very happy crowd that attended Government House and enjoyed a lovely reception with Allister's grandchildren adding a welcome ray of youthful exuberance to the event.
