We were delighted when our CEO and charity founder, Lynn McManus was named in the Queen’s Jubilee Honours list on the 1st June 2022. Unfortunately, due to the sad passing of her Her Royal Highness the Queen, the collection of Lynn’s MBE was delayed until March 2023.
Lynn was presented with her medal by the Anne, The Princess Royal at a lovely ceremony at Windsor Castle on Wednesday 8th March.
Lynn was awarded an MBE for her services to charity. As our charity founder, Lynn has dedicated over 13 years of voluntary service. Her invaluable contribution can be seen in the huge development of the Tim Lamb Centre over the last 10+ years. What started out as a local project for North Tyneside families, has now grown into a much-appreciated play and leisure facility, accessed by families from across the whole of the North East region.
In addition to her dedicated volunteering, Lynn has also raised in excess of £1.5 million through fundraising events, including organising 10 charity balls. Her efforts have ensured the continued development of the Tim Lamb Centre’s facilities and wider charitable services.
Lynn’s MBE, follows a host of other accolades our remarkable CEO has received over the years, including a Platinum Champion Award received in 2022, The Chronicle Sunshine Fund Glass Slipper Award in 2020 and Pride of the North East Award in 2018.
