Many of us have no idea what the Queen’s Honours System is all about let alone how people from various communities get selected to become knighted or receive a CBE, MBE or OBE. Recently F1 veteran and six time world champion Lewis Hamiltion who is half Grenadian was awarded a knighthood in the 2021 New Year’s Honours List.

The general feeling on many ordinary people is that the New Year’s Honours Lists is reserved for high profile, rich individuals and outstanding public figures. Unfortunately that is not true as a range of people who do voluntary work without recognition outside of their main jobs to help strangers.

The Honours Committee wants to hear about selfless people from the Caribbean community deserving of recognition.

There is an opportunity for the UK Caribbean community to learn more about how the New Year’s Honours List works and how people can be nominated for knighthoods.  Click the link below to find out more about the system of awarding honours.
