Members of St John Scotland Highland area this week thanked Lorraine Rudkin for her support of their Giving Tree initiative.
Each Christmas, St John Scotland members in Inverness host a giving tree at the city's Eastgate shopping centre, inviting members of the public to donate presents to children in care. Every year the scheme helps collect donations of thousands of presents for children across the Highlands.
Lorraine and her husband Mark have been dedicated supporters of the scheme for six years, raising some £300 to buy around 40 presents each year.
Lorraine was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by St John Scotland Highland area committee member Kirsty Fullerton in recognition of her oustanding support.
