Speaking to the local press, Sibley, who is also a trustee for the D'Oyly Carte Charitable Trust and Springboard told the Hertfordshire Mercury: "I was amazed and very humbled by it. I'm very grateful and hugely honoured.

"I enjoy the giving part and especially helping the young and the disadvantaged and those who haven't had such a privileged start in life and trying to enable people to go and have a good career in hospitality, set them on the right path and give them skills they can use in whatever shape or form in later life.
