Helen Brunner receives Polish Gold Medal Award

On 15 July 2012, Helen Brunner was amazed and honoured to be awarded the Polish Gold Medal for Culture and Heritage from the Polish Government.

The presentation event was in the grand ballroom of Lancut Palace, at the International Music Course 2012. The Minister of Culture and Heritage came from Warsaw (200 miles away), to present the medal to Helen for her services to the Polish people over the last 24 years, (a sort of Polish OBE).

It was a wonderful surprise and a great privilege to be awarded such a distinction. Poland is a country dear to her heart.

Later, the Mayor of Lancut gave a banquet with lots of lovely Polish food, lots of music teachers, lots of speeches and lots of vodka – Certainly, a happy occasion!
