2016 saw Cor become only the fourth ever recipient of the Honorary Freedom of Renfrewshire following a unanimously backed motion by Provost Anne Hall and Councillor Brian Lawson.
The award recognised Cor’s courage and determination. Renfrewshire Provost Anne Hall said: “Corinne Hutton’s attitude and achievements are an inspiration to everyone who meets her.
“Even before her illness, Corinne worked hard to support charities. To continue and develop that involvement to help others in the same circumstances given all she has been through is typical of her character.”
Paisley East and Ralston councillor Brian Lawson said: “It is entirely fitting that the community which has been helped so much by Corinne has shown its appreciation for all she has achieved.”
