"I’m humbled to have been conferred with the distinction of being made a Knight by The Equestrian, Secular and Chapterial Order of Saint Joachim. An Order established in 1755. This award is an acknowledgment of all my charity work, my volunteering for Healthwatch Portsmouth and my health service career. I now have a very distinctive neck cross as part of my award and a beautifully embossed certificate. Both were awarded to me by the Grand Master of the Order and the UK Commander. What an incredible honour and privilege." - Roger Batterbury
