Listen to Stevie Spits Radio Show every Sunday and Monday 8-10 pm only on Sunshine FM
Local man-child Stevie Spit has been awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) in this year’s Queen’s New Years Honours List for his services to charity. Stevie Spit is well known on the entertainment circuit for his outrageous comedy female impersonator act and his awesome singing, which include being part of the New Jersey Boys who had a very successful summer touring around the region.
He has been performing around the world since 1987. When not on stage, Stevie spends a great deal of time working with and to raise funds for various charities including Elche Children’s Home, Natasa Lynch fundraiser and, missions to Kabul in Afganistan where his act not only entertained but also raised thousands for local causes.
On learning that he would be visiting Buckingham Palace to receive his award at the same time as Elton John, Stevie quipped “Well there will be three queens in the palace that day then!”
Stevie went on to say: “In the years when I was flitting in and out of Afghanistan, under the radar of the Taliban in order to raise desperately needed funds for war-torn children, I never dreamed in a million years it would lead to me being awarded a BEM. I’m feeling very honoured to be recognised in this way.”
Her Majesty’s Ambassador in Spain, Hugh Elliott said: “It is extraordinary to see nine British nationals awarded at the same time – a real testament to the depth and diversity of the UK-Spain relationship and to the contribution that so many British nationals make to their communities across Spain. Stevie (as most people know him) is a truly inspirational fundraiser. His enthusiasm is such that whenever he organises one of his many impromptu charity fundraisers it is almost a guaranteed success, such is his support from the local Costa Blanca community.”
