HB4X4R's former vice-chair Mike Sutton has been recognised with a BEM in the Queen's New Year Honours ๐Ÿ…๐ŸŽ‰

The award is for his โ€˜services to emergency response in Hampshire, particularly during Covid-19โ€™.

During the UKโ€™s first lockdown, HB4X4R assisted with the setup of an emergency PPE warehouse and provided logistic support to Hampshireโ€™s Local Resilience Forum (LRF). Mike oversaw the HB4X4R volunteers involved and played a key role in setting up the distribution channels that ensured vital equipment was available to those who needed it most.

Throughout the pandemic, HB4X4R deployed over 70 responders who covered 60,000 miles and completed 2,232 deliveries of PPE and vaccines around the county. The charity was also involved in administering swab tests to 890 lorry drivers at Portsmouth International Port and spent three months testing 2,500+ staff at Hampshire Constabulary.

Mike said, โ€˜I am truly honoured to receive this recognition, but in reality this is for the entire HB4X4R team that worked so hard during the pandemic. They are undoubtedly the best bunch of volunteers that I have ever had the privilege of working with and they should all be very proud.โ€™
