On Monday 27th September 2021 my wife and I attended an Investiture at Westminster Abbey as I was awarded the British Empire Medal ( BEM ) in the queens Birthday Honours List for services during Covid-19 to rough sleepers, frontline workers and families in need. The boroughs that I worked in were Newham, Waltham Forest and Redbridge. My award was presented by Sir Kenneth Olisa Lord- Lieutenant to Greater London on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.

Hello my name is Frank Charles and I am 52 years of age , I am retired from full time work due to having stage four blood cancer and cancer of the bone marrow.
