MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRWOMAN – TESS HART
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Cumbria Women of the Year 2013 website. It is very heartening after 24 years of holding this annual event, which is dedicated to rewarding those women who work selflessly for the benefit of others, to still be receiving such worthy nominations from around the whole of Cumbria.
We are struck by the generosity of spirit, tenacity and courage that drives so many to do so much for others and we wish to celebrate all those achievements at a special presentation luncheon in November, when The Cumbria Woman of the Year will be chosen.
This event relies on those who take the time to write such sincere & enthusiastic nominations about special women who make a significant difference within their communities.
Perhaps you know someone who deserves recognition for the unsung work they do? We would love to hear about them and acknowledge their work.
Additionally, we recognise the significant and constant contribution made to our county by women over a great length of time with the Cumbria Life Lifetime Achievement Award, which is also presented at the Luncheon.
Without the support of our sponsors each year we would not be able to hold this event each year and we are grateful to them for their very generous support.
I would like to give personal thanks to my hard working committee who have each brought their individual skills to creating this special event.
Please take a look over the website and consider whether you know someone who deserves to be nominated. We look forward to hearing about them.
With best wishes,
