CST people recognised in New Years Honours list

31 Dec 2011 by CST

CST is proud that two key figures involved with the charity since its inception have been recognised in the New Years Honours list.

CST's Chairman, Gerald Ronson, has been awarded a CBE for his philanthropic work inside and outside the Jewish community. Gerald has been a central figure in Jewish defence and anti-racism since the 1960s. He was the driving force behind CST's creation in 1994 and remains our Chairman to this day.

CST's Director of Government and International Affairs, Mike Whine, has been awarded an MBE for services to community cohesion. Mike has worked for CST since its creation and, like Gerald, has been involved in efforts to combat antisemitism and racism in this country for decades. He is also the Defence Director of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, a position he has held for many years.

To both Gerald and Mike, we say: Mazeltov!

“I’ve now worked with CST on and off for about 11 or 12 years directly, and in that time I’ve seen it develop into a really professional organisation – well-funded, well-organised, delivers on its promises, very challenging, there’s no messing about... But it has my support and it has the Police service of the United Kingdom’s support – great partner, it delivers what it says on the tin and it does its best to keep safe and share intelligence and allow us to move forward together.”
