LINLITHGOW woman Fiona Hunter has been recognised by the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service for her incredible 27 years of service to Brae Court in Linlithgow.

Fiona (62) worked for the council for many years but left her job to care for her daughter Emma, who is wheelchair-bound.

As Emma got older Fiona began to volunteer and still does today.

“I just like to help others,” she told the Journal and Gazette.

“It’s so rewarding just knowing that you are making a wee bit of a difference in people’s lives.

“Here at Brae Court we have a shopping trolley service.

‘‘With this we get the residents various items and groceries that they may not be able to get in the complex.

‘‘This is great for the people who maybe don’t get visitors as often as other residents who will bring them things,.

“I hope to keep volunteering here for as long as I can.

‘‘For me work should never be about the financial gain, it should be about doing your bit to help others.”

Manager of Brae Court, Rena Kirton-Vaughan added: “Fiona has been a great friend to Brae Court for 27 years.

‘‘She gives so much of her time to help the residents here, so I would like to thank her for that.”
