Two of Age Cymru’s colleagues have been honoured in the Birthday Honours List for 2010.
Thomas Moran MBE - Tom Moran from Monmouth, Gwent, has been honoured for voluntary services to older people in Wales.
Mr Moran served in the Royal Engineers, and was seconded to the Royal Indian Engineers and served in Burma from 1941 to 1946, before transferring to Germany in 1947.
Tom has worked passionately for many years to improve the lives of older people and is still active on many national and local committees.
Says Tom of receiving his MBE:
“It came out of the blue. I am very pleased, but I know of many, many other people who are more eligible for this than me.”
Glenys, Mrs Thomas MBE - Glenys Thomas from Garnant has been honoured for her services to older people in Carmarthenshire.
Glenys was organiser for the Cwmaman Meals on Wheels for 20 years and a volunteer for more than that.
She said she was undeserving of a Queen’s Birthday Honour:
“I can’t believe it. I don’t think I deserve it. I’m sure there are a lot of people better than myself”.
Robert Taylor, OBE, Chief Executive of Age Cymru says:
“I’d like to congratulate Tom and Glenys on receiving their honours. Both are fully deserving of these honours, yet typically are being very self-effacing about their achievements.”
