She was awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire 12 years ago for her contribution to the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service, a charity that provides a range of services for vulnerable people who might otherwise feel lonely.

    Hope is the name of a district of Salford. – Michael Harvey Feb 26 at 18:33
