Nicola Greenan Nominated in Yorkshire Women of Achievement Awards

We are excited to announce that East Street Arts External Relations Director – Nicola Greenan is one of the nominees in the newly created Arts category for this years Yorkshire Women of Achievement awards. The YWOA is a ceremony which raises funds for Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice.

Nicola, originally from Seacroft, helped to set up LS14 Trust, which has more than 2,000 members and promotes change and creativity through its community hub. Nicola has also chaired the Leeds Music Trust, which supports young musicians with disabilities, and she is now a director at East Street Arts.

Nicola said:

“I am delighted to have been nominated for the award. I have been privileged to have grown up in the region and had so much support from many people over the years and this has enabled me to help others.”

All the money raised through the event helps support the work of Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice. Hospices like Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice provide free specialist care services as well as emotional support to patients and their families. Wheatfields Hospice spends £4.4million every year to provide its specialist care services, but only 44 per cent of the costs to run the hospice are covered by statutory funds, the rest comes from voluntary donations.

Charlotte Revill, Senior Hospice Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Wheatfields Hospice, said:

“We want to recognise and celebrate fantastic women in Yorkshire, like Nicola, who might not realise that they have done something outstanding. The Women of Achievement Awards is the perfect opportunity to recognise women and say thank you.”

This year’s Women of Achievement event takes place at New Dock Hall, the Royal Armouries, Leeds, on Friday, May 12. Tickets cost £60 each and £550 for a table of ten.
