Diagnosed with leukaemia aged 13, Alice came to prominence when she posted a online bucket list of things she wanted to achieve before she died.
The list attracted international media attention.
The BEM has been reintroduced to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to honour volunteers who make a real difference to their communities.
It is just such a huge honour and I am so privileged.
I can’t believe that I have been honoured by the Queen and that me
and my sister are doing it together.
– Milly Pyne
Honours lists are published twice a year at New Year and in mid-June on the date of The Queen’s official birthday.
