Lochgilp­head women achieve top Red Cross hon­our

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

TWO LOCHGILP­HEAD women have been recog­nised by the Red Cross for their self­less ded­i­ca­tion as they re­ceived a rare hon­our.

On Sun­day Oc­to­ber 29, Es­ther Agnew and Linda Tighe were pre­sented with the British Red Cross badge of hon­our at the fi­nal an­nual meet­ing of the West of Scot­land Vol­un­tary Coun­cil.

Both Linda and Es- ther have served on this coun­cil for many years, but changes to ser­vice struc­ture mean that coun­cils are be­ing dis­banded.

Es­ther cur­rently works at the Red Cross Shop in Lochgilp­head and has been a loyal mem­ber of the or­gan­i­sa­tion for nearly 60 years.

Linda is well known for or­gan­is­ing the Red Cross cof­fee morn­ings. She cur­rently car­ries out hand and arm mas­sage at a lo­cal care home and at the Dochas car­ers’ cen­tre.

Linda Tighe and Es­ther Agnew were de­lighted to re­ceive the badge of hon­our from the Red Cross.
