Margaret received the Life After Stroke award from Debbie Moore, the founder of London's Pineapple Dance Studios, at a ceremony in London last month hosted by comedian Christopher Biggins.

Jon Barrick, Stroke Association chief executive, said: ‘Margaret has been a tireless pioneer of stroke recovery services for over a decade. Stroke can be devastating and for many people it can come out of the blue and can leave you with a range of disabilities. Margaret has provided a lifeline for stroke survivors in Dundee. She helps survivors regain their independence, improve their health and reduce the risk of having another stroke. We are delighted to recognise such a valuable service and a remarkable lady.’
