Lynne McNicoll

Founder and Chair

When Lynne McNicoll first began fundraising at the age of 49, she had no idea where it was going to take her. A year later, she had raised over £54,000 – and discovered a talent for networking and organising events on the way. Enlisting the help of the East of Scotland community, Lynne raised over £650,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust over the next four years. This helped to fund facilities especially designed for young people in Edinburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children. She has also earned the title of Institute of Fundraising Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year Scotland 2009. She found herself inspired not only by the young cancer patients that she met, but also by their families. It’s Good 2 Give was started to support the young cancer patients and those who put their lives on hold to care for their child, grandchild or sibling. Lynne has set a challenging initial target of £1.5 million for herself and her growing army of energetic volunteers. They have no doubt, however, that the ever-proven generosity of the East of Scotland will help prove not only that it is good to give, but that is is possible to make a huge difference by doing so. Lynne is Chair and Director of Fundraising for the charity. In 2014 she was given the Sir William Y Darling Award for Good Citizenship by the city of Edinburgh Council and in June 2015 was given the Local Hero award for Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year and then in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2015 given an OBE for services to children's charities in Scotland.
