HAWICK Linden’s ‘heid cook and bottlewasher’ has been named RBS Volunteer of the Month for October.
And Moira Black, who has been a stalwart of the Volunteer Park club for the last 30 years, told the Hawick News this week she couldn’t believe it.
She said: “I was really shocked when I heard about it, but I’m very proud.”
When in attendance at Volunteer Park visitors are most likely to find Moira cooking up the teas for the players and pre-match lunches.
And if she’s not whipping up a storm in the kitchen she will be organising and fund-raising for the many different charity events run in the clubhouse.
She has faithfully served the club while her husband and current Linden president (Rob), son (Craig) and son-in-law (Bruce Law) have all run out for the Royal Blues on a Saturday afternoon.
She added: “I’ve been brought up with the club and started coming along when I was young.
“It’s a great club to be involved with, but it takes a great committee to run a club and that’s definitely what we have here. It’s great to get this award, but the Linden is a real team effort.”
Moira will receive a table at the annual Scottish Rugby Club awards dinner at Murrayfield where she will be in with a chance of winning the RBS Club Volunteer of the Season award. The dinner will take place on Friday, May 25, next year.
