You may remember local lady Cath McInally won the “Inspirational Individuals” category in Blantyre Oscars 2019, back in April this year. Her kind acts over the years saw many people vote for her.
We recently learned that her Oscars trophy was destroyed in the terrible fire which gutted her shop on Main Street during the summer. Family told us how upset she was, the loss of the trophy just adding to the misery of losing stock and her valued premises.
So tonight, we organised a replacement trophy and popped along to surprise Cath at the Women’s Guild in the June Stewart Centre. Temporarily interrupting the bingo, Cath was presented with her replacement.
Cath told us her shop is unlikely to be renovated anytime soon but never one to rest, she’s trading still from home until premises are sorted. For now though, as you can see, she proudly posed tonight for this photo with a happy and gracious smile.
