Margaret’s MBE

CHILDREN 1st project worker Margaret Mills has been presented with an MBE by the Queen at the Palace of Holyrood House in recognition of 41 years of work with the RSSPCC and CHILDREN 1st in the Borders.

The charity worker’s accolade was announced in the New Year’s Honours List and she paid tribute to all the children and young people and their families who chose to work with her.

A week before the ceremony, Margaret, from Kelso, and a friend, Eleanor Wood, completed a 12-mile walk, raising £380 for CHILDREN 1st.
