Christchurch Investiture 8 November 2022 AM

This morning in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Dame Cindy held investitures for eight Queen’s Birthday and Platinum Jubilee honours recipients, including our most decorated para athlete, Dame Sophie Pascoe. Dame Sophie had her international debut in the pool at 13 years old. In her career so far, she has become a Paralympic champion, Commonwealth Games champion and world champion swimmer.

Also among this morning’s recipients was Mr Yu-Shiun Tang, who received a QSM for services to the Chinese community. Mr Tang is a master calligrapher who has held exhibitions throughout Christchurch. He teaches calligraphy and tai chi to generations of others in the community. Congratulations to all this morning’s recipients.
