BEM for RNLI fundraiser Mo

Mo received the accolade, awarded in the King’s Birthday Honours, from Pat Sawers, Lord-lieutenant of Angus in a ceremony attended by family and friends at Gayfield.

The Lord-lieutenant highlighted Mo’s career with the guild, which she joined in 1989, becoming vice-president in 2002 and president in 2016 and her leadership has seen the Guild raising almost £180,000 since 2014.

Her dedication to the RNLI is rooted in a family tragedy. Her late grandfather – who she never got to know – perished in the Robert Lindsay disaster of 1953 when six crew died while returning to Arbroath from a call-out.
