Queen’s Birthday Honour for Chair of TVPS
Sean Wheeler, Chair of TVPS, has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list this year. The list, which was made public last weekend, recognises the achievements of extraordinary people from across the UK and the Commonwealth. Sean was awarded the British Empire Medal (BEM) for charitable service. He has been volunteer with us for over two decades. He began volunteering as a buddy, helping support people living with HIV. He then joined the board of Trustees before taking the helm as Chair of the charity. He has attended countless events, raising awareness of HIV and helping tackle the stigma that still surrounds the virus.
We’re very proud and feel extremely lucky to have someone this passionate and committed leading our organisation. Congratulations Sean!
