A woman who has fostered more than 250 children over five decades has been appointed MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
Christine Marie Lunn, 74, from North Anston, South Yorkshire, continues to foster and has vowed to "go on as long as I possibly can".
She started taking in children in Rotherham in 1975 and still sees many of those she has helped over the years.
The 74-year-old said she "trembled in shock all weekend" when she was told.
"I'm absolutely dumbfounded, shocked, speechless, amazed - these things happen to other people," she said.
