Joan Tomlinson was named Oldham Woman of the Year at the annual charity lunch held at The White Hart Hotel in Lydgate, Saddleworth.

The Woman of Oldham award aims to recognise one of the towns many women who have either benefited or brought credit to the Oldham area through their tireless community work.

Joan won the award for many years of fundraising for the Hospital League of Friends, Macmillan and many other charities. In fact, her friends say Joan cant say no to a charity request. More than 200 ladies attended the lunch and helped raise around 8,000 to buy equipment for In Your Hands, the new women and childrens project at the Royal Oldham Hospital.
