It's time to honour Katie; Views of the North Views of the North 10/02/15.
IN this day and age the Queen's Birthday Honours seem to be handed out to anyone. Overrated and over paid sportsmen,pop stars, actors and loads of hangers-on.
However wouldn't it be a refreshing change for an ordinary girl to receive such an honour.
Surely Katie Cutler deserves this? Her idea for fund-raising for poor frail Alan Barnes has touched a lot of hearts and has gone a long way to restoring my faith in the youth of today.
It is the likes of Katie and others who do unstinting charity work who are seldom given a second glance.
I would like to think the Journal would lend its weight to such a scheme.
JOHN TAYLOR, Howdon
