Name: Jackie McCormickPosition: Locality manager for Sure Start Children's Centres, West Northumberland.


How did it feel to be awarded an OBE by the Queen for services to children and families?

It was an honour. I took my husband and sisters with me to Buckingham Palace to collect my OBE. I was told how to greet the Queen three times by her staff, but when it came to meeting Her Majesty I froze and forgot it all.

Were you aware that someone had nominated you for an OBE?

No, and I still don't know who nominated me! I was away on holiday with my family and celebrating my mum's birthday when I found out I was a recipient in the Queen's Birthday Honours for 2012.

How long have you worked in your current position?

I started as a locality manager for Sure Start in West Northumberland seven years ago. My job requires me to look after five children's centres.
