John Low, Chief Executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, has been awarded a knighthood for charitable services in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2017.
Responding to the award, John said:
“I’m delighted and surprised to be honoured in this way, and of course most grateful. I’ve had great the pleasure of working with many highly capable people in some amazing organisations that together have made a lasting difference and I hope this recognition reflects on all our work together to change things for the better.
“My role, along with my colleagues at CAF, is to bring people together to support the work of tens of thousands of charities all over the world. It has been a privilege to play a part in building the capacity of civil society to transform the lives of beneficiaries.
“I would really like to congratulate the hundreds of people from all walks of life who have been honoured for volunteering their time, giving money and lending their enthusiasm to charities of all sizes. They are truly an inspiration to us all.”
