Queen's Birthday Honours: Stephen Sutton's MBE
Stephen Sutton, the teenage cancer sufferer who raised more than £4m for charity, has been honoured with an MBE in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours.
Stephen, who was 19 when he died last month, had been told about the honour before his death.
His fundraising efforts have†inspired others to help him raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
His mother, Jane Sutton, said he saw it as an incredible honour to be nominated and gave it the thumbs up.
In a statement she added: "Although Stephen continually told all of us that he didn't do his charity work for recognition, even he acknowledged that to be appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire was 'awesome'."
He is joined on the list by the likes of actress Angelina Jolie, who is receiving an honorary Damehood for her work to fight sexual violence.
This week, Jolie has taken centre stage at a summit in London to End Sexual Violence in Conflict (ESVC).
Her honorary Damehood is part of the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 Honours List for exceptional service to Britain overseas.
Jolie said: "Working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI) and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself.
"I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."
In the acting world, Dame Maggie Smith is made a Companion of Honour, while Daniel Day-Lewis receives a knighthood, and Homeland star Damian Lewis gets an OBE.
In sport, Britain's winter Olympic winners are honoured. Skeleton gold medallist Lizzy Yarnold receives an MBE, as do visually-impaired skier Kelly Gallagher and her guide Charlotte Evans.
An OBE also goes to Wales rugby head coach Warren Gatland, while England women's cricket captain Charlotte Edwards receives a CBE.
Golfer Laura Davies becomes a Dame, as do author Hilary Mantel and fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.
And MBEs go to Torchwood star John Barrowman, singer songwriter Cerys Matthews, and Nicola Clarke, chair of the Military Wives Choirs Foundation.
The Cabinet Office said 1,149 people had received an award and alongside the famous faces, 73% have been given to people for the charity or voluntary work they do for their local community.
Ron and Avril Head, who have fostered 140 children over the past 30 years, were in shock at receiving their MBEs.
Mrs Head said: "We hope this will be a way of promoting fostering. There are hundreds of children waiting for people to look after them and hopefully we might inspire people."
IT entrepreneur Scott Fletcher, from Manchester, also gets an MBE for helping young people into work.
Women receive 49% of the honours, while 6.2% of all those honoured come from ethnic minority communities, a slight increase on recent lists.
The last New Year Honours†List was the first in which the women outnumbered the men.
