Blewbury’s Elliot Vaughn has been honoured with an MBE in The King’s Birthday Honours list 2023 for outstanding achievement and service to the global LGBTQI community through founding the charity GiveOut.

Elliot, who grew up in the village, founded GiveOut at the end of 2017, to enable individuals and business allies to give in one place to support LGBTQI human rights activism worldwide.

Congratulations Elliot!
