Our LAKPA Chair,  Kirit Modi MBE, recently attended Windsor Palace to receive his award.

Kirit was awarded his MBE in the 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours list and it was bestowed upon him by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal in a ceremony on 28th February. The award is for Kirit’s contribution and his dedication throughout the years to supporting kidney patients and promoting organ donation.

In addition to his role in LAKPA, Kirit is also honorary president of the National Kidney Federation, Chair of the Jain and Hindu Organ Donation Alliance and is a member of the project board for the community investment scheme run by the NHS Blood and Transplant.
