Magpas chief executive Daryl Brown was at Windsor Castle to receive from the Princess Royal, the MBE awarded him in the Queen’s Birthday Honours last June.  

"The investiture was amazing,” he said. “It was so nice to receive the award from Magpas Air Ambulance’s Royal Patron, HRH The Princess Royal.” 

He said: “I am a small part of an extraordinary legacy that the charity has built over five decades. 

“I really would like to share this award with everyone who has passionately supported the charity and especially helped us keep going over the past two years through Covid.”
