Lee Robinson made Member of the NZ Order of Merit

We are proud to announce that partner Lee Robinson was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to the community and sport in the recent Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Over the course of his professional career Lee has worked selflessly and tirelessly to advance various community and sporting organisations and initiatives.  In the community sector he has contributed to numerous health related organisations, including establishing the Rainbow Children’s Trust in Christchurch and more recently in his capacity as a director of the Akaroa Health Hub, which is charged with rebuilding Akaroa’s health centre and hospital.  In the sport sector he has been instrumental in the development of the Hagley Oval and the return of international cricket fixtures to Christchurch as Chair of the Canterbury Cricket Trust.

The partners and staff at Saunders Robinson Brown congratulate Lee for this well-deserved recognition.
