A campaign is under way to get royal recognition for a woman who has fostered 250 children.
Mrs Roberts was given an award in 2001
Doreen Roberts from Long Sutton, Somerset, has been a foster parent for 40 years.
Now one of her foster children is lobbying for her to receive a Queen's Honour Award.
The 70-year-old - who with her late husband Don, raised five children of her own - was presented with a High Sheriff's Award in 2001.
At times, Mrs Roberts has been foster mother to as many as eight children at once.
"I can't imagine not having children in my home," she said. "It would be quiet, but it wouldn't be home."
