Wilko Johnson is proud to be on the receiving end of an honorary degree from Anglia Ruskin University this month, at a ceremony at Cambridge Corn Exchange.
Vice-chancellor Professor Iain Martin said: “This is a very special day for those receiving their awards and it will be a great pleasure to be part of the graduation ceremonies, hand our graduates their certificates and honour their achievements. They all deserve to feel both pleased and proud as they mark this important transition.
“The recipients of honorary degrees are exceptional individuals with a connection to the region or the work we do here at Anglia Ruskin University.
“The award acknowledges their contributions to society and we hope will serve as an inspiration to our graduates as they take the next step in their lives.”
Wilko was successfully treated for pancreatic cancer at Cambridge’s Addenbrooke’s hospital and last year he raised more than £10,000 for the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, following the lifesaving surgery.
