The Secretary-General of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award praised the University of Bolton’s work during the pandemic as he received an honorary doctorate.

John May OBE DL was awarded a Doctor of Social Science for his outstanding contribution to Young People from Baroness Helen Newlove, the University of Bolton’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor.

He said: “I am chuffed to bits to be with you today. And it’s a joy to be here in person rather than on the end of a Zoom call!”
