PROMOTE PR CEO Sue Anstiss has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List 2018 for her services to grassroots and women’s sport.
The prestigious Queen’s honour is in recognition of Sue’s unwavering support for community sport and her work to raise the profile and increase the impact of women’s sport.
Over the past 25 years, Sue has volunteered her time to lead and support a number of local and national charities. She is currently chair of Get Berkshire Active, a founding trustee of the Women’s Sport Trust and a non-executive director of the County Sport Partnership Network.
Promote PR also donates 10 per cent of its time to charitable causes every year.
Sue said: “I was so surprised and incredibly humbled to receive such a prestigious award. I feel hugely honoured to be recognised in this way.
“At times like this, it’s natural to think about making your loved ones proud, so receiving this award is slightly tinged with sadness. My dad, who was the ultimate sports fan, passed away earlier this year. I know he would have been extraordinarily proud to hear that his daughter had been awarded an MBE.
“It’s a great tribute to a man who encouraged his daughter in sport as much as his three sons; someone who recognised ‘great sport is great sport’ whether played by men or women.”
