Chamber member, The Expert Insurance Group, were proud to receive the news just after Christmas that Vernon Unsworth, one of their Mortgage & Life Advisors, had been honoured with an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list for his part in rescuing the junior football team in the Thai cave rescue back in June & July 2018. The news story made Global headlines with the 12 boys and their coach led to safety after nine days underground.

Vernon has worked with Affinity Select Insurance Services for the last 15 years. He is currently in Thailand where he has been appointed by the National Park Officials as Coordinator for the clean-up exercise in and around the Tham Luang cave. Vernon is working on producing the survey and plan for the next phase of operations; he is very humbled by the experience and feels honoured by the MBE. He’s a very caring man and felt the responsibility for the lives of everyone involved, a situation made more emotionally challenging because of the media attention.

Congratulations Vernon… we wish you well with your continued endeavours in Thailand.
