Mon 11 Jun 18

A Fife businesswoman is to be awarded an MBE as part of the Queen's Birthday Honours.

Moira Henderson is the owner of The Rings near Cupar which is a building offering holiday accommodation for people with access requirements and contains a range of specialist equipment.

She's receiving her award for services to Accessible Tourism in the Kingdom.

Moira Henderson is the Chair of the chairs for the six Local Tourism Associations across the whole of Fife as well as Chair of Cupar and North Fife Local Tourism Association.

She said: "Families that have disabilities, that are affected by disability - they're like everybody, they are us. It could be you, it could be me - they are us and they just want the same abilities to go on holiday and to enjoy themself, as people that don't have physical problems do.

"The benefit of having the MBE for me is to be able to spread the word about equality and accessible tourism and about accessibility in general. We want to make Scotland the most accessible destination - that's the end goal."
