A man who raised 180 thousand pounds for the Port Isaac lifeboat is among the Cornish unsung heroes on the New Year's Honours list
76 year old Bob Bulgin has been awarded the British Empire Medal for seven years work.
He tells Pirate FM he thought the letter was something like a parking offence: "The RNLI's a unique organisation. So many people volunteer for it and give their time; a great big thank-you to all those that have been involved in putting me forward.
"I would like to think that it reflects the excellent team that we have on our committee and crew; I think it applies to them also. You've got to have a good team and perhaps this award to myself reflects my team which are second to none in my opinion."
Jillian Gwendoline Carr, Human Resources director at Pendennis Shipyard in Falmouth has been awarded an MBE for services to Education.
Kenneth George Radford is honoured for services to people with learning disabilities through People and Gardens at the Eden Project near St Austell.
