Anne-Marie said she was ‘surprised’ and ‘honoured’ to be included. “It’s a well done and thank you to my team, our volunteers and those who have taken us seriously over the last 4 years. This is humbling and a sign of what is to come. Inclusivity in the sector and across society is important for all of us – it’s an honour in itself to do the work we do.”
