A youth worker, a professor, a surgeon and a teacher from Warrington, are among those honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours
Dave McNicholl, aged 44, Chief Executive at Warrington Youth Club has received British Empire Medal.
Dave was “completely shocked and humbled” as he normally doesn’t appear in the limelight, preferring to put other people forward.
He said his honour was an accolade for the staff and volunteers at the Youth Centre which is part of the multi-million pound Onside Project, currently being built in the town centre
“We have a brilliant team who go above and beyond for young people,” said Dave, who is looking forward to the new facility opening next year.
It won’t be Dave’s first visit to the Palce as he attended four years ago when OnSide Warrington Youth Club attended the Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace after being awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
