Region's Inviduals recognised in the Queens New Year’s Honours List 2016

Lothian Special Olympics (LSO) Chair Yvonne Anderson has been recognised with an MBE in the 2016 Queen’s Honours List, while Lothian Disability Badminton Club’s Christine Black was awarded the British Empire Medal for services to Sport.

Special Olympics holds a very special place in Yvonne Anderson’s heart, devoting an incredible amount of time to the movements for many years.  Most recently leading the GB aquatics team to success at the SO World Games in Los Angeles while continuing to take on the responsibility of chair at a local level – all of this while working full time as a Sports Development Officer in Midlothian.

East Lothian’s own Development Officer, Christine Black has been involved with badminton since before her teenage years – claiming bronze at the 1986 Commonwealth Games and more recently taking on the role as Team Manager at the 2002, 2006 and 2014 Glasgow Games.  Christine has also had a significant role to play in the success of the region’s very successful disability badminton club over the years – regularly attending sessions and providing key experience on the committee.

Well done Yvonne and Christine from everyone at Lothian Disability Sport, very well deserved.
