Chairman Caroline Will Raise Breast Cancer Awareness

Councillor Caroline Maudlin is the new Chairman of Central Bedfordshire Council.

As Chairman, Cllr Maudlin will be an ambassador for the Council, representing the authority on civic visits and at ceremonial events. She will also raise funds and awareness for her chosen charity, Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Commenting on her new role, she says: "Having recently experienced breast cancer – I wanted to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer which is working to find a cure for a disease that affects many thousands of women and their families. As well as raising funds I also want to spread the message about prevention – particularly in a year when the council is taking responsibility for public health. It's about healthy lifestyles and regular self-examination so you get early treatment if you find anything out of the ordinary."

Caroline  has served the Sandy ward since 2011.  She was one of the early members of cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic Airways where she's worked for the past 22 years. She once helped Sir Richard and Lady Joan Branson organise a huge charity ball for the NSPCC. She now flies part time as a Flight Service Manager for Virgin Atlantic,  travelling the world three times a month.

Cllr Maudlin also runs her own business in garden supplies from her home in Hatch which she shares with her partner and two dogs.
