A VOLUNTEER at a Darlington church has had her work recognised in a national competition.

Margaret Romain, a volunteer at King's Church, in Darlington’s Whessoe Road, was a runner-up in the annual Inspire Awards, which recognises inspirational Christians.

The 63-year-old set up a weekly care and share group at the church to allow vulnerable people to meet new people and learn new skills.

Ms Romain has suffered from bipolar disorder for a number of years, which inspired her to set up the group

She said: “I am very proud just to have been nominated.

“There was a need for something like this in the church, and the group is open to absolutely anyone.”

Ms Roman attended an award ceremony at the Houses of Parliament, in London, last week where the winners were announced.
