Robert Winsor M.B.E. and Judy Arnold-Boakes M.B.E. were both honoured in the Queen's Birthday Honours list last week and are now waiting to be informed of when they should travel to Buckingham Palace to receive their medals. Judy Arnold-Boakes, who retired as President of Age Concern España last year but continues as patron, was awarded her M.B.E for services to the British community in Spain. Robert Winsor was awarded his M.B.E. for services to disabled children in Majorca. Arnold-Boakes and Winsor had never met before but they were not short of things to discuss and they both have a very special award in common.
Judy Arnold-Boakes has dedicated 20 of her 27 years in Majorca to helping the British community; she was the founder of Age Concern España eleven years ago. Winsor, who only moved to Majorca nine years ago, has raised over one million euros for disabled children via his annual celebrity golf tournaments.
This year he celebrated 25 years of charity golf events and yesterday morning was arranging the purchase of two new specially designed mini-buses for disabled children with some of the funds raised from this year's event. Bendinat Golf Club director Jorge Pando, who was the one to publicly call for a medal for Winsor, invited the two to lunch yesterday in honour of their great work and to congratulate them for being awarded the M.B.E. We're both delighted and eager to learn when we can go to the Palace, they said yesterday.
