The Queen Honours Hull Children’s University Staff and Volunteers

Friday 16th June was a day to remember for Hull Children’s University as we saw not one, not two, but three of our friends named in the Queens Birthday Honours! Staff and volunteers from Hull Children’s University made up three of the eight honours given in East Yorkshire.

Dr John Buttrick, Founder and former Director of Hull Children‘s University has received an MBE for his services to children in Hull after being nominated by Hull Children’s University and our  supporters.

Mark Stockdale, our longest-serving volunteer and tutor received a BEM for services to education after being nominated by St Anthony’s Primary School.

Trustee and volunteer at Hull Children’s University, Ruth Truelove, was also awarded a BEM for service to education for her work as a reading assistant and governor at Stepney Primary School, Hull, and as a volunteer for the National Literacy Trust.

We are so proud of John, Mark and Ruth and feel very lucky to have them as part of our charity. Congratulations!
