Wini receives her award on stage, where the judges called her "a local Antrim angel”.
Wini McCausland has won an award for all her good work as Ward Manager of the Macmillan palliative care unit at Antrim Area Hospital.
Wini was named 'Local Champion' at this year's Antrim Community Excellence Awards after being nominated by the mother of Terri Moore, a young woman who died from cancer.
Terri’s mum said: "My daughter was admitted to the Macmillan palliative care unit to manage her pain, but Sister Wini saw beyond Terri's physical needs."
"Wini understood my daughter's wishes as a young mother who wanted her children to remember that she loved them, which is why she organised a family trip to Belfast for my daughter to 'build a bear'."
"Now Terri's children have their own teddies and can hear their mummy's voice, whenever they squeeze them."
"Wini found other unique ways to treat and care for Terri too, like organising a girly night in with a film and take away. I'll always cherish the memories and photographs I have of my daughter's last days."
