NEWTON Mearns woman Isobel Kirkwood has been named fundraiser of the year at the Bighearted Scotland Awards.

Isobel (93) was nominated by Erskine after volunteering with them for over 20 years.

The former teacher — whose husband was a spitfire pilot during World War Two — has given talks on the importance of the veteran charity and raised almost £20,000 for it.

Mrs Kirkwood dedicated the award to her late husband.

Lucy Wilson, chair of Bighearted Scotland, said: “We encourage people to think about someone — whether it’s a young person, carer, celebrity or entrepreneur — who has touched their hearts and who they think is worthy of an award.

“They deserve credit for their efforts and that’s what our awards are all about.”
