EACH Trustee appointed Deputy Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire

Feb 07, 2018
Lily Bacon, an EACH Trustee, has been appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.

The Lieutenancy is an ancient office dating back over 500 years. Each county has a Lord-Lieutenant, who is the Queen’s personal representative, responsible for upholding the dignity of the Crown and promoting a spirit of cooperation and good atmosphere by supporting voluntary and benevolent organisations and through the interest they take in the business and social life of their counties.

The duties and responsibilities of the Lieutenancy include arranging visits of members of the royal family and escorting royal visitors; presenting medals and awards on behalf of the sovereign, and advising on honours nominations; participating in civic, voluntary and social activities within the lieutenancy; acting as liaison with local units of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army, Royal Air Force and their associated cadet forces; and leading the local magistracy.

From time to time, Lord-Lieutenants appoint a number of Deputies to advise, assist and deputise as required in the discharge of their duties and responsibilities and in carrying out the work of the Lieutenancy in the county. The appointment is unremunerated and is for life, with retirement customary at the age of 75.

  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH helped us with coping mechanisms and special ways of remembering Stanley. Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
