Lord Mayors Show

Jacky Clifford and granddaughter Daisy meet Lord mayor Anne Underwood at the Lord mayors Show

For Jacky Clifford an unusual event of meeting the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Anne Underwood, twice in a week whilst at the Lord mayors show on 11 June.

Jacky, ably assisted by Granddaughter Daisy was on the RNLI fundraising stand at the show.

She had previously been nominated for a volunteering award for her services to RNLI fundraising.

Awards Nomination

Jackie and Chris are off to Soho House today with Fundraising Manager Megan Cooper for the awards ceremony for the Lord Mayors Community volunteer award.
Her service over more years than I can remember is amazing so recognition outside the RNLI would be wonderful.



Here’s a quote from Community Fundraising Manager Megan Cooper

What a fantastic way to end Volunteers Week! Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Birmingham Voluntary Service Council (BVSC) Volunteer Awards with our very own Jacky Clifford​ who was shortlisted for an award. It was delightful to see so many inspiring volunteers and the diversity of charities and individuals involved. I’m so pleased that Jacky got the recognition she deserves and the RNLI had the opportunity to be part of this wider celebration.

Finally, I wanted to say thank you to you all… to our current supporters and volunteers, for all your continued support no matter how big or small. Thank you for everything that you do. You’re awesome.”
