      Queen's Birthday Honours, 2017 "For services to the community. Mr Julian Shields set up a Nelson branch of Habitat for Humanity in 1995, a worldwide not-for-profit organisation which aims to build houses for families in need. Through Mr Shields’ efforts funds were raised for the first home to be built and since that time 23 total homes have been built by Nelson Habitat for Humanity. He chaired the Nelson branch from inception until stepping down in 2016. He also took on the role of project manager, sourcing donated materials and recruiting volunteers and tradesmen, and delivering many presentations to men’s groups and church congregations to raise awareness of Habitat for Humanity. He was previously involved in the establishment of Altrusa House in 1992, while working with Keith Hay Homes, which provides accommodation for relatives of out-of-town patients at Nelson hospital. He has been a volunteer host at the Nelson Mission to Seafarers, which provides a shore-based facility for visiting sailors, and is involved with Grace Church of Richmond. In 2004 Mr Shields travelled to India at his own expense to help with the recovery efforts following the Boxing Day tsunami." AWMM
