Mr Terry Grimwood received the Badge of The Order of Mercy at a prestigious ceremony at The Mansion House on 13th June. The award was made by The President of the League, The Rt Hon The Lord Lingfield, in the presence of the Lady Mayoress of the City of London. The NFA’s Vice-Chairman Mr David Cowley and Chief Executive Colonel Piers Storie-Pugh both attended the ceremony.
Terry Grimwood was recommended for this award, in the form of a cross of the League, as a result of his outstanding work for charity over many years and in particular his individual and voluntary work for the NFA.
The League of Mercy was re-founded in 1999, exactly 100 years after it was first established. Its central aims today are ‘the encouragement and recognition of distinguished voluntary work within the areas of care’, often set against a backdrop of personal hardship.
