THE Linda McCartney Centre and the Roy Castle Foundation are to be added to Liverpool's Freedom Roll of Association in recognition for their contribution to improving health in the city.
The Magistrates Association will also be added to the list, while four individuals will be made Citizens of Honour.
Gabriel Muies is to be recognised for his tireless work to see the Williamson tunnels opened as a tourist attraction and ensuring the return of the Henry Pooley gates that used to sit outside the now demolished sailors’ home in Paradise Street.
Professor Ray Donnelly, of the Roy Castle Foundation, and Winnie Keating and Peggy O’Brien, both of the Lily Centre, will also receive the honour.
The pair founded the centre after both suffering from breast cancer. The centre offers emotional support to other women living with the disease.
Lord Mayor of Liverpool Cllr Sharon Sullivan said: "Liverpool is fortunate to have many organisations and individuals who are truly public spirited.
"They devote their lives to championing worthy causes and improving the quality of life for others in the city. It is right and proper that we honour their dedication and commitment."
