A 67-year-old woman from Tunbridge Wells has been awarded two royal honours.
Polly Taylor was given the British Empire Medal in the Queen's Birthday Honours as well as the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service - the highest honour for a charity.
Nine years ago Polly started Pickering Cancer Drop-in Centre in Tunbridge Wells which offers support for families affected by cancer and is entirely funded by donations.
They have so far raised more than one million pounds.
Polly herself was diagnosed with breast cancer twice but overcame the conditions both times.
Her husband Mike, 64-year-old, was then diagnosed with lung cancer and died in April.
Polly will receive her awards at Penhurst Place on September 16th from Lord Lieutenant Viscount De L'lisle.
