Britain’s oldest girl guide volunteer will be given a prestigious award following her years of dedication and service to others.
106 year old Betty Lowe has been a girl guide since 1919, when she was 11. She has also been a volunteer at a hospital with the Royal Voluntary Service for the last 40 years.
David Cameron has announced the inspirational pensioner will be honoured with a Point of Light Award, which recognises those who make an exceptional difference to their community.
Betty told The Telegraph: “I really enjoy volunteering. I would be lost if I didn’t come to the hospital to volunteer. It’s something to occupy my mind. I enjoy the company and you meet people here who you would not normally meet. It keeps me from being lonely and I don’t like being lonely.”
