Charlotte Weir of Blackwaterfoot has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Receiving the British Empire Medal (BEM), Charlotte has been honoured for her voluntary service in Glasgow and Arran, and in particular, her work with the Glasgow City Mission.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Ayrshire and Arran, Sheriff Iona McDonald, said: ‘I would like to send my congratulations and best wishes to all of the individuals from Ayrshire and Arran who have been recognised in the honours list. They have made a considerable contribution to our local communities and I am sure that this award comes as a great surprise, as many of them do not seek any recognition for the work that they do.

‘I would like to see more people from across Ayrshire and Arran being recognised with an honour and I would actively encourage anyone who is aware of someone worthy of an award to nominate them.’
