On receiving the award Graham said “ I am delighted to accept this honour on behalf of all of the families, volunteers, trustees, staff and at Dandelion Time, all of whom give their time generously to ensure our innovative charity can continue”. 

Dandelion Time is a charity for children and families struggling with trauma often arising from physical or emotional abuse, neglect and domestic violence.
