A Save the Children committee member of nearly 30 years from the Fens has been posthumously awarded a gold badge.
The late Marilyn Spinks of the Wisbech branch, who died in 2019, was honoured for 27 years of "service and dedication" and raising nearly £40,000.
The devoted member had raised £37,000 for the charity from the sale of tickets for her regular themed quizzes and fundraising events.
Family and friends gathered to remember her as Stanley, her brother, collected the gold badge which was presented by community fundraising manager Adrienne Williams.
A spokesman said: "A very dear and devoted committee member of the Wisbech branch of Save the Children Marilyn Spinks was recently posthumously awarded a gold badge.
