Leona O’Neill, MBE

Recently we made you aware that our colleague Leona O’Neill had been awarded an MBE for services to charitable fundraising for people with Sarcoma.

We are now delighted to share that Leona O’Neill, who is a solicitor consultant in our Legal Services (DLS) team, was awarded her MBE by the Princess Royal at an Investiture at Windsor Castle on Wednesday 20th March 2024.

We are extremely proud of Leona and the work she does with The Boom Foundation. The Boom Foundation, which Leona founded, is a Northern Ireland Charity dedicated to supporting anyone diagnosed with Sarcoma and their families.

Leona said:

“I am deeply honoured and humbled to have received this MBE on behalf of the volunteers and supporters who have devoted themselves to raising the profile of the Boom foundation charity and supporting the many families and people affected by Sarcoma cancer in Northern Ireland”.
