Mr Anthony Miller MBE copyright released image by Charles Green Photography Ltd 1204C205PICTURED in their posh hats after receiving his MBE at Buckingham Palace are Tony Miller, director of the Whitechapel Mission, together with his wife, Sue, and daughter Jessica.

Tony, who has been connected with the Mission for 30 years, was made an MBE for services to homeless people in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list.

“I am exceptionally proud, and a little embarrassed to have received this award, as it is the trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters who make the Mission the special place it is. It is an honour to simply be a part of it.”, said Tony when asked how he felt.

“A very special day, made even more exceptional by the fact that I was accompanied by Sue and Jess, the investitures where
presented by the Queen herself, and the weather was fantastic.”

The Mission continues to serve homeless and rootless folk every day of the year, providing a daily breakfast and working with them to improve their life skills and opportunities.

Tony started out in the early 1980’s and has been fully directing the work there since 1996.

  1. Where wd we be without these unsung heroes! Would that there were also a few in the wealthy Western governments that allow the atrocities of street-homelessness to escalate.
