Congratulations to NCC tutor Gloria Armistead who has been awarded an MBE!
Gloria is a founding member of the charity Foetal Alcohol Syndrome Aware UK (FASAwareUK) which aims to make people aware of the effects that drinking alcohol can have on an unborn child. Gloria received her MBE for services to FASD for both awareness and reduction of this syndrome.
A Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) is only awarded to the most deserving, for outstanding service to the community or local ‘hands on’ service. Gloria certainly meets this criteria and has worked determinedly over the years carrying out fundraising and raising awareness with the ultimate aim to reduce the occurrences of FASD.
Gloria has worked closely with NCC Home Learning for a number of years, authoring the fascinating Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and FASD and the Criminal Justice System programmes. Gloria has not only authored these courses but also continues to support and guide learners through these programmes as a distance learning tutor for NCC.
We would like to congratulate Gloria on the honour of being appointed MBE, this recognition is well deserved after the many years of hard work and campaigning for FASD awareness!
