Acher, who receives an LVO – Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order – worked as treasurer for the jubilee celebrations which were held with enormous fanfar back at the beginning of June.

Acher retired earlier this year from KPMG but has worked on many bodies since, including the jubilee.

He said: ‘This is a very pleasante surprise and very unexpected. It was good fun which I found quite challenging because we only had a limited amount of time to do it in and as with all these things what you can put on is limited by the amount of money you can raise.’

In managing the finances Acher said the central difficulty was committing to expenditure while money was still being raised. An example of this was with the giant TV screens put up around various London parks. The organisers had to committ to those very early because they were in huge demand for the World Cup, being stage at the same time.
