Victim Support would like to congratulate Jan Gaskell, the chair of our Leicestershire Volunteer Forum, for being awarded Member of the British Empire (MBE).

Jan, who has been a volunteer with Victim Support for 10 years, was named in the New Year Honours List 2013 in recognition by the Queen for her achievements and services to the community.

Javed Khan, Chief Executive of Victim Support, said: "We would like to warm heartedly congratulate Jan for being awarded an MBE. It is an impressive achievement and we are proud of all the hard work she does supporting victims of crime on our behalf."

Jan was described as having made a difference to people in the community less fortunate than herself over a period of 30 years.
