CAF Trustee recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours

13 June 2016

CAF Trustee Alison Hutchinson has been awarded a CBE for services to the economy and charities in the Queen’s 90th Birthday Honours.

Responding to the appointment, CAF Chief Executive John Low said:

“All of us at CAF would like to add our congratulations to Alison Hutchinson, who has been appointed CBE in the Birthday Honours List.

“Through the Pennies Foundation Alison has built new ways for people to support the charities in such an easy way that’s part of their everyday life, and she has brought a wealth of business and commercial experience to her work with charities. We are enormously grateful for her support and guidance as a trustee of CAF over many years.

“We would also like to extend our congratulations to the philanthropists and charity colleagues who appear in the Honours List. Their work and commitment underpins our communities and helps make Britain a country of which we can be proud.”
