AN honour has been given to a funeral director just months after she helped orchestrate Prodigy singer Keith Flint’s funeral.

Louise Griffiths, assistant funeral manager at Daniel Robinson and Sons in Braintree, has been awarded the Paul Harris Fellowship Award by Braintree and Bocking Rotary Club.

The award was in recognition of Louise’s fundraising on behalf of Rotary.

She said: “I’ve been in the Rotary Club for eight years. We’re only a very small group, which is 73 years old.

“We fundraise for lots of different things.

“We’re in the process of doing a tree planting. We raised over £700 for the eradication of polio. We had a dinner that raised £415 which was going towards a wheelchair for a young boy who needed one.

“We don’t do really big events anymore because we’re short on numbers, but we do help other charities if we get asked.”

She added: “I just like doing stuff in the community, I like giving back.

“I was really shocked to get the award - I didn’t see it coming. It was really nice to know that my fellow Rotarians felt I was deserving of it.”

Club secretary Monica said: “Louise does so much for the whole community as well as Rotary and deserves the recognition.”
