Brian Hazell MBE
Congratulations to Brian Hazell, Secretary of the Suzy Fund based in the Parish of St. Peter & Paul Wakefield who has been awarded an MBE in the 2011 New Year's honour list recognising his work in looking after The Suzy Fund over the last 35 years, during which time he has helped raise over £600,000 for aid projects across the third world, and in countries like Romania too. "This award is not for me" Brian said "but for the people in the parish and elsewhere including St. Martin de Porres, St. Cuthbert's Ackworth and as far away as Glasgow - who have regularly given for so long to Suzy through direct giving, concerts and other funding raising. Our giving shows that we care, and that we can focus not just on our immediate parish concerns, but on people half a world away who desperately need our help."
