Helena has responded to her CBE Award, and naturally she is thrilled! Thanks to Sky News we have the following quotes from her:
“I’m thrilled, though not sure I deserve it. I always thought my father deserved a medal for facing 25 years of chronic disability with quiet daily heroism, so I am delight to accept such a wonderful honour in his memory.
I’m wondering, does it mean I get to command? Because at the moment it’s my four year old daughter who does the commanding in our household. Must inform her of the change in situation.”
