Cheshire Woman of the Year 2014 You only have to read the messages of thanks on the web site to see that this event gives so much pleasure to so many people. For the past 29 years, women from all walks of life who were born , have lived or have worked within the old boundaries of Cheshire have been acknowledged for their outstanding contribution to the community. Not only the ladies who attend but also the committee enjoy being among such inspirational people and as far as the committee is concerned , it is that, which makes them want to continue holding this event each year. After all these years, we still continue to receive nominations from people who just want to say how much they appreciate what others are doing to enrich their lives and each year we are amazed by the quantity and quality of these nominations. Each committee member reads each one of the nominations and after much discussion , a winner is finally found. The winner for 2014 was Lynda Hill who set up The Joshua Tree charity which is a holiday house and support centre for families and children with cancer after her own child was diagnosed with Leukaemia. The lunch is held at Eaton Hall Cheshire and although the ladies are the main focus, a celebrity is invited to present the silver salver. Coverage of the event is by Cheshire Life Magazines and articles, photos and messages are on our web site: www.cheshirewomanoftheyear.co.uk Everyone deserves a pat on the back and this is the way Cheshire Woman of the Year says Thank You.

Message from NSPCC
“To the Cheshire Woman of the Year Steering Committee. I would like to say a huge thank you to each and everyone of you for all your hard work on the 2014 Cheshire Woman of the Year lunch. £6,330.80 has been given to the NSPCC to be used to fund the ChildLine Schools Service in Cheshire.
Specially trained volunteers are going into every primary school across the UK and talking to children in years 5 and 6 about how to keep safe and who they can talk to if they need help. You are all making this possible, thank you so much”.
Rachel and all at the NSPCC North West Team
