In November, representatives of the CII attended the annual dinner of the Leicester Insurance Institute, where president Julie Rayson-Flynn was awarded a medal for 24 years of adult volunteer service in the RAF Air Cadets.
The accolade was awarded by the Lord Lieutenant of Leicester, as personal representative of Her Majesty the Queen. Almost 300 guests attended the event, which supported the Matt Hampson Foundation as its charity.
Ms Rayson-Flynn said: "The theme of the dinner was our fantastic profession.
"I was honoured to be presented with the second bar to my long-service medal, which represents 24 years as an adult volunteer."
