A girl guide group leader and volunteer has been awarded for her dedication to her community.
Sue Till, who has been running the 2nd Headstone Scout Group based in North Harrow for over 30 years, was given the Halifax Giving Extra Award in January which recognises commitment by local people to better their area.
Mrs Till said: “Watching the girls mature and grow into responsible young women, many of whom have gone on to achieving wonderful things both with their families or in their career, means the world to me because I know I have played a small part in their development.
“I am glad that I have won this award but I could not have done this on my own. The support of my leaders and my family is second to none and I thank all of them for the part they play.”
The group, which meets at the rear of Methodist Church in Pinner Road, North Harrow, has been running since 1929.
She was one of 67 regional winners after being nominated by her friend and former guide Shelley Cole, who has since gone on to help Mrs Till run the group.
Mrs Cole said: “She has made a difference to so many young girls’ lives by giving them the opportunity to do activities they would not get the chance to do otherwise.”
