MBE Surprise for Mrs Collins

A STRANRAER woman has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours.

Harriet Allan Collins, formerly chaiman of the Multiple Sclerosis Society in Wigtown, was honoured for services to the community in Stranraer.

While Mrs Collins had heard that her name was put forward for the award, she did not know that she had officially been honoured until she read her morning newspaper. She said:

"I only found out when I read the Glasgow Herald on Saturday morning. My reaction was one of sheer amazement.

"It is very humbling and I have been absolutely overwhelmed by the congratulations and good wishes from people.

"I could not have achieved this without the constant support and encouragement from my husband though. He has always been there for me."
