IN WHAT CAPACITY DO YOU KNOW THE NOMINEE : She's my Grandma, known to many as well as the family as "Grandma Lynne" A lady who is not only my grandma but my friend as well.
She doesn't interfere but is there for advice if I need it, gives me roof over my head when I'm at work as an apprentice chef, and washes my stuff without any asking and loves me to bits as I do her!
YOUR NOMINATION ACHIEVEMENTS, PERSONALITY & SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE COMMUNITY & OVER WHAT PERIOD OF TIME? : Lynne retired from the Ambulance Service in November 2019 after joining the service in January 1979 as an Ambulance Care Assistant of 40 years. In that time she has done much for her work and friends and much of the information I have gained is from her husband Steve.
During her 40 year career on the Cumbria/Northwest Ambulance Service she has achieved much, in 1994 Lynne was nominated for a national award by patients, managers and other health professionals. The award given by the Ambulance Service Institute was Ambulance Care Assistant of the Year and was presented to her at the AMBEX Conference in Harrogate.
Lynne also studied for 7 years to be a councillor and became the councillor for the Cumbria Ambulance Service where she cliented staff for many issues, they trusted her to keep confidences and admired her caring attitude to all. During her time she also trained as Critical Incident De-briefer for staff within the county to listen to the traumas and details of staff if required after attending particular horrific incidents. During her time with the service Lynne has a number of commendations and Long Service and Good Conduct Awards, the latest being October 2019 just before retiring at the young age of 70.
During her working life my Grandma has had to contend with the loss of her husband Fred at a young age and herself had to contend with breast cancer twice and all the operations and treatment that went with it, the second time only 2 years ago, She has always had a positive attitude about beating the cancer and I am told, had the same attitude first time around, still passing on that positiveness to other sufferers. Wow! Thats's Brill!
After the loss of grandad Fred, Friends set up the Fred Whitton Challenge and grandma has been involved in the management team since the very begining 21 years ago. The charity ride of 113 miles raises monies for many Cumbrian charities and causes which Lynne helps to manage with the management team, these include Air Ambulance Service, Macmillan Cancer Care, Mountain Rescue, Childrens disabled and partially sighted cycling, Pump track in Allithwaite, provision for youth cycling are among a number of the projects she helps to distribute funds to. The event, although only one day takes many hours of organisation and days to set up, On the day Lynne manages the Buttermere feed station with its large number of volunteers.
I am only at the beggining of my career at the age of 19, I hope I can fit as much in mne as my "Grandma Lynne " has.
The person I have nominated deserves to be considered for an invitation to the Cumbria Women of the Year Lunch because: : No 1 she's my Grandma, but seriously, a lifetime of achievments, from a caring, loving individual who has had adversity along the way and still continues to help others. A fab candidate for a Lifetime Achievment Award who has done so much within her life and community and continues to be active in the FWC.
