Pat Mayle was awarded an MBE by Princess Anne at Windsor Castle on 14 th   December 2021 for her commitment to Girlguiding and Covid Response with  the Comfort Bag Scheme. Such an amazing achievement for Pat and Girlguiding Greater Manchester West.  


When asked about the day Pat said, “It was an amazing day and to be at Windsor Castle was incredible. I was impressed that all the members of staff in the castle said “Congratulations and have a good day” We were made to feel very special and put at ease the whole day”


Pat chatted to Princess Anne for several minutes about her Girlguiding stories and the Comfort bags. Pat said Princess Anne was “really kind, lovely and interested in what I had to say. She made me feel at ease and we had a laugh together”.


Pat was accompanied by her daughter who was allowed to be in the room when she was presented with the award. 


Pat wants to say "a huge thank you to everyone who has and continues to support the comfort bag scheme as without them I never would have recieved the MBE".
