AFTER many years of service Elizabeth 'Betty' Mary Collins has been awarded a life membership to the Warwick RSL Women's Auxiliary.

Mrs Collins was unaware she was being presented with the award yesterday afternoon.

"I just thought we were coming out for lunch," she told the Daily News.

"It was a lovely surprise. I am shocked and speechless.

"It is nice to be recognised but I didn't do anything more than a lot of others have done."

Warwick RSL sub-branch president John Skinner said Mrs Collins had been involved since the end of the Second World War.

"A lifetime membership is not to be taken lightly," Mr Skinner said.

"Betty's efforts have helped raise funds for the welfare of veterans through the RSL sub-branch."

RSL Women's Auxiliary president Bev Spence said Mrs Collins had been a loyal member for many years.

"She served two terms of four years as vice president," she said.

Mrs Collins also is a member of the Red Cross Society and the Warwick Potters Association.
