Charles W. Davis Jr.
(Subic Bay, PHILLIPINES)
Bestowed with the Rank of Knight Commander in the Illustrious Order of Merit.
Mr. Davis is an American who has been helping the Philippines and it's people in his own way for over 12 years. In 2004, having taken a early retirement, he came to live in the Subic Bay area of the Philippines. He choose the area for its relaxing way of life, combination of jungle areas and seafront as well as the scuba diving. Charles had spent many weekends diving at the bay in the past, and had done extensive research on the local shipwrecks. After in depth research he wrote and had published the “Subic Bay Travel & Dive Guide”. The research for the book showed him that there was a need for a tour operator and better local marketing. Based on his findings, he established Seahorse Tours and Souvenirs in 2006.
The company's initial operations included a souvenir store that featured locally made goods, almost exclusively made by livelihood programs. Livelihood programs are design to help poverty stricken families have an alternative and frequently the only means of earning. Charles also personally funded a program to make souvenir items and marketing support items. As the company grew, its focus changed and the souvenir store was closed however the company still acts as a distributor supplying items to a number of small hotel gift shops. Currently the company is focused on bringing more tourist to the Subic Bay Area. While still a small company, it enjoys a reputation of one of the best travel agents in the country. It is a strong marketer of Eco-tourism and Eco-friendly tourism. Many of the tours help the Aetas a local indigenous tribe often impoverished. The company also supports tourism education accepting four interns this year. Just recently Charles was invited to speak at a local college on Entrepreneurship skills
and chose to speak on Customer Service skills as an often Overlooked Skill.
Charles is: Marketing Director of the Greater Subic Bay Tourism Bureau (GSBTB), editor of its soon to be released quarterly magazine ” The Subik Traveller”, member of the Subic Bay Dive Association (SBDA) and is the historian for that organization. His work with the SBDA has also lead to his and Seahorse Tours involvement with Green Fins. The Green Fins Programme is an initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme. It was launched in 2004 in Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines. The Green Fins mission statement is “to protect and conserve coral reefs by establishing and implementing environmentally friendly guidelines to promote a sustainable diving tourism industry.
Charles believes in staff development. He provides training and guidance for the best possible development of his staff. One thing that sets him apart of most local business leaders is that he then empowers the staff. Even a junior member of the staff is empowered with more authority than managers in most other companies. His confidence in us allows him to spend time with those organizations he supports. It is not uncommon for him to spend 40% of his time with them.
In his personal life he is beyond reproach, people hold him in high esteem and he contributes to charities and cultural associations.
He has a history of helping students having a scholarship or grant of some sort since 1998, currently he provides a full scholarship for a nursing student that includes a living allowance.

Note:
The submission for recognition of this man for his efforts is one of the most detailed and praising applications that this Principality has received in a long time, the information above constitutes only a tiny part of what this man has achieved and has been detailed to us by his Peers and his Staff and associates.
We Congratulate Sir Charles on attaining such a level of respect within his chosen community!

FOODBANK - GERALDTON.
(Geraldton. WESTERN AUSTRALIA)
In the 2009 New Years Honours list Pat Hodges, Manager of Foodbank - Geraldton was awarded a D.C.S.O.L. and her assistant Doug Bibby a K.S.O.L. for their tireless dedication beyond the norm, in their management of the Foodbank - Geraldton Charitable Food Distribution Centre to most of the huge State of Western Australia.

I t was reluctantly, accepted by both of these honourable persons because, as they said, it is a team effort put in by all the staff (most are volunteers), the organisation itself (Foodbank W.A. website, click here!) and the many suppliers and retailers, etc that supply the necessary foods, other items and services to make it all happen. For the first time, HRH Princess Shirley and the Board of Directors of the Red Cross of Hutt Charitable Trust have seen fit to honour the Geraldton branch of Foodbank Western Australia for the efforts put into such a wonderfully supportive, essential service to the community of Western Australia including many of those in the most remote parts of that State of Australia.

Once again, all those involved deserve awards for all that they manage to achieve every week of the year for their fellow human beings, a very admirable position in which so few of us would ever find ourselves.
To honour all involved, it has been decided to Commission the first ever PHR Red Cross of Hutt Charitable Shield and award it to Foodbank - Geraldton!

CONGRATULATIONS to all involved on a job and service continually WELL DONE!
FOODBANK - GERALDTON.
