Commenting on her MBE, announced in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List, Debbie said: ‘It was a complete shock but an absolute honour to be awarded an MBE and I would like to extend my appreciation to all the team at Heald, our distributors and customers throughout the world who have been instrumental in the success of the business. I would also like to thank my partner Rod and our daughters for their continued patience and support.’
