I read in the News & Star recently that the founder of the Cumbria Women of the Year awards has herself been awarded an MBE for her services to the Cumbrian community.

Juliet Westoll, married to Richard and who has two children, Nicholas, 24, and Annabelle, 23, has devoted her life to local causes including the NSPCC, Riding for the Disabled (Blackdyke Riding Centre) and Hospice at Home in Longtown. Mrs Westoll has given her support particularly to children’s charities following the death of her first-born son, Charlie, when he was just two-years-old.

The Cumbria Women of the Year awards was set up 20 years ago to acknowledge inspirational local ladies.

Mrs Westoll will become the High Sheriff of Cumbria in 2012 and said of her MBE: “I was completely and utterly gob-smacked but feel very honoured. There are so many brilliant women out there who are no doubt far more deserving than me.”

Well done Juliet!
