A Cumbrian doctor has been given an MBE in the New Year Honours for services to Victims of Trauma.
Dr Theodore Weston, from Penrith, have been working in a voluntary capacity for more than 20 years.
He set up the BEEP Fund Ltd (Birbeck Emergency Equipment for Patients) in 1994 in order to raise money to buy the equipment needed for doctors who perform this work.
He has been chairman and leader of this organisation since the start.
The Fund has now raised over £400,000 since it was first set up; it has as a result been able to pay for and buy an array of lifesaving equipment.
