A TIRELESS charity worker has been honoured for her work with an award from the Princess Royal.

Sue Jagelman of Barley was recognised at the Save the Children Awards ceremony, where she received a Lasting Achievement Award from the Princess, who is the charity's president.

It came in recognition of the outstanding service to children she has given throughout her years of volunteering and the role she has played in the success of the charity's Speaking Out scheme.

Sue said: "It was a great honour to receive this award from Her Royal Highness.

"I am immensely proud of the contribution volunteers make to the organisation and I'm indebted to the many other dedicated volunteers and staff who have contributed to the continuing success of Speaking Out.

"It was a privilege to receive the award alongside others who have contributed to changing children's lives in so many different ways."

Having been a volunteer with Save the Children for 36 years, Sue has held a variety of roles at both local and national levels, including five years representing volunteers on the Board of Trustees. She is currently Speaking Out ambassador for the UK.

She has been involved in Speaking Out from its beginnings in Hertfordshire in the late 1980s.

The pioneering scheme uses trained volunteers to raise awareness of the work of Save the Children in schools and in the wider community.

Jasmine Whitbread, Chief Executive of Save the Children, congratulated Sue and the other award winners for their contributions to the charity's work, which she said "exceed all expectations.
