The owner of a home care company has been named as one of the country’s “Platinum Champions” for the Queen’s jubilee.

Fatta Thapa, who owns care home Home Instead in Greenwich and Bexley, was made a Platinum Champion for his dedication to voluntary service and helping older people living with dementia within his area.

To celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, 490 volunteers from across the UK were awarded as platinum champions for helping others. Mr Thapa was selected as a champion from more than 3,000 nominations.

Mr Thapa said: “It is an absolute honour to have been named as one of the UK’s Platinum Champions.

“To attend the Platinum Party and Jubilee Lunch was also amazing, being in the presence of royalty and so many other amazing people.

“The initiative is a wonderful way to recognise people who go out of their way to support others, and it is truly heart-warming to be amongst such inspirational people.”

Mr Thapa joined 70 other champions at the Platinum Party in the Palace and the Eden Project’s Big Jubilee Lunch in London over the Jubilee weekend.

As the owner of an ‘outstanding’ home care provider, Mr Thapa runs various community awareness events on a volunteer basis, including supporting older people and people with dementia.

Mr Thapa is also an Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Ambassador and part of his role is to hold dementia friends sessions in the community, helping families learn how to spot the condition and how to support their loved ones.

Mr Thapa runs ‘memory cafes’ in the community where people with dementia can take part in activities that help them cope with their diagnosis.

Recently, Home Instead Greenwich and Bexley also won a Civic Award from mayor of Bexley for outstanding achievements in supporting older people.

The Platinum Champions are people from across the UK who are being celebrated for going the extra mile to improve the lives of others.

The initiative was launched by the Royal Voluntary Service, and supported by the Queen and The Duchess of Cornwall who are patrons.
