An octogenarian from Blackpool has scooped a top national award in recognition of her service to a good cause.

Margaret Currier, 82, has been crowned Retail Volunteer of the Year in veterinary charity PDSA’s annual volunteer awards, beating off competition from thousands. She is a volunteer at the PDSA’s busy store on Abingdon Street, Blackpool – helping raise funds for sick and injured pets.

The judges were impressed with Margaret’s “outstanding passion and commitment to the charity”, as she has been volunteering three times a week for 15 years.

Joanne Hastie, store manager, said: “I can’t think of anyone more deserving for the award. Margaret is so lovely, loyal and a friend to everyone.”

Margaret said: “I’m very honoured. I didn’t expect anything like this or the lovely things that have been said about me.”
