Ealing people recognised in 2023 New Year Honours

Three people from Ealing including a 100-year-old woman who volunteers at Ealing Hospital, a restaurateur who brought Nepalese food and beer to the UK and a fashion retailer are among those recognised in the 2023 New Year Honours.

Beryl Carr, the NHS’s oldest volunteer, gets an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to the community in West London has worked in Ealing Hospital’s Friend’s Cafe since 2003.

Beryl recently said: “The great thing about volunteering is that you are helping other people but in funny way you are helping yourself as well.”

Earlier this year, Beryl celebrated her 100th birthday and still volunteers one day a week at Ealing Hospital to help prepare and serve food to those using the popular Friends Cafe.

“I’ve made a fair few sandwiches in my time but I really enjoy the social side of it,” Beryl said. “I can’t think of anything worse than being stuck in front of the TV all day. The great thing about volunteering is that you are helping other people but in funny way you are helping yourself as well.”

Mahanta Shrestha, 72, is the founder of Nepalese restaurant Monty’s in Ealing Broadway as well as launching Khukuri Beer. He gets an OBE and is recognised for services to the community in the London Borough of Ealing and to the Nepalese community (London, Greater London)
