The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) and The League of Friends RJAH are thrilled and delighted to offer their warmest congratulations to Susan, Lady Trevor who has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for ‘Services to Healthcare Charities’.
For more than 53 years, Lady Trevor has supported numerous charities; Chirk Hospital Circle of Friends, Horatio’s Garden, NSPCC – and most notably The League of Friends RJAH for whom she is Vice-Chairman and has been involved with since 1968.
Lady Trevor said: “I am humbled to receive this honour, it was so very unexpected.
“I hope it can also highlight the work of the wonderful charities that I have been involved with, in particular The League of Friends and RJAH, a hospital which is incredibly close to my heart. I am part of a fantastic team and we are very fortunate to have many people working hard to support charities across Shropshire.”
Mark Brandreth, Chief Executive at the Oswestry-based hospital, said: “On behalf of everyone at RJAH I would like to congratulate Sue for this wonderful honour, it is tremendously well deserved.
“She always shows great drive and enthusiasm for the work she supports, most recently in fundraising for our Horatio’s Garden, which has provided a sanctuary for patients with spinal injuries, an invaluable resource in the care of vulnerable patients during the pandemic.
“On a personal note I would like to add my own warm affection and gratitude for all the work Sue has done for the Trust.”
Victoria Sugden, League of Friends Charity Director, said: “Lady Trevor is an exceptional individual who has consistently given her time, energy and abilities to help others over many years.
“We are so proud of her achievements and thrilled that she has been honoured in this way.
“Kindness and generosity is at the forefront of everything that she does and we could not be more delighted for her!”
Over the years, Lady Trevor has achieved an enormous amount for RJAH including fundraising for the Research Centre, Chapel Concert Hall, Hydrotherapy Pool and Horatio’s Garden to name but a few.
