We are pleased to announce that our founder and chair, Karen Verrill, has been nominated for the ‘Woman in the Community’ Award at the annual celebration of women’s achievements in the North East.
“Karen’s immense dedication to support people with cancer as part of her full time work but continuing also her own charity work as founder and chair of Ladies in Pink Scarves is immense. Whilst raising vital funds, including for Maggie’s Centres, she is also building long lasting, supportive communities and networks of people affected by cancer.
Everyone that meets Karen is somehow inspired to move beyond limitations of their diagnosis. She’s the kind of person who helps people in finding again courage and hope when lost.”
