Fiona Spargo-Mabbs, DSM Foundation founder and director, receives OBE from King

The DSM Foundation is delighted to announce that Fiona Spargo-Mabbs, founder and director of the DSM Foundation, received her OBE from King Charles during an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, July 11th, 2023. Fiona was named in the 2023 New Year’s Honours List for her work with young people, having set up the drugs education charity the DSM Foundation when her son Daniel died after taking an accidental overdose of ecstasy in 2014.


Fiona commented: “It was such a special day, and an enormous honour to be given this level of recognition for the work of the DSM Foundation, and to receive it from the King himself – but it was also deeply bittersweet, weighted as it was with the loss of Dan, without which none of this would have happened.”
