CUMBRIA LIFE AWARD FOR LIFETIME
ACHIEVEMENT 2019 WINNER

Lynne Thornton

Lynne Thornton was named as winner of The Cumbria Life Lifetime Achievement Award.  Lynne has worked tirelessly to ensure that autistic children – she is the mother of two – have the best possible education.  Lynne campaigned with tenacity, dedication and humour to raise both awareness and funds; her efforts culminated in the establishment of the Cumbria Academy for Autism, a transformational school built and staffed to provide for children from 4 – 19 years to reach their full potential.  A truly incredible achievement – an amazing lady!
