Glentrool resident Morag McIlwraith recently returned from a visit Romania as part of her work with the Children in Distress charity.

During her stay in Bucharest, she was presented with an award by the charity’s chief executive Alisdair Barron, to thank her for her fundraising work.

Morag, who has undertaken this volunteer work for 15 years, said she would like to thank the people of the area who regularly send in funds and knitted items for the charity.
