Chris Tomlinson OBE
Chris Tomlinson OBE, is the former CEO of Cumbria Tourism. An honorary fellow of the University of Cumbria, she was nominated in 2013 to receive an award from the University in recognition of her outstanding service to tourism and business in Cumbria and for her charitable work in support of Cumbrian initiatives.
As a trustee of Cumbria Community Foundation she has been hands on in helping promote the work of the Foundation. In February 2013 she camped out in a freezing-cold igloo in the Langdales to raise money for the Winter Warmth Appeal – clearly enthusiastic and keen to do what she can for those in need of aid in Cumbria!
