MBE For Paul Strank Of Wimbledon

Queen's honour for local businessman

Wimbledon businessman Paul Strank has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Paul, who founded Weir Road-based Paul Strank Roofing, has been given the award in recognition for his services to charity and the local community.

One of his company's fund-raising activities is a annual Charity Gala. This year's event takes place on September 21, with Peter Andre as the headline act.

Terry Morgan said on behalf of the company: "Paul would like to convey his heartfelt thanks to all the people who have participated in, and supported his ongoing community efforts and charitable endeavours.

"He looks forward to the years ahead, proud in the knowledge that the community and people have made, and can continue to make a difference."

  • Paul Strank and his team held another fundraiser with Pudsey Bear on June 21 at the Ambience Restaurant in Wimbledon to raise money for Children in Need. The night raised more than £7,000 for the cause.
