Perfect time to win as Dagny steps down
A HEALTH worker who has worked tirelessly in order to put on an annual fundraising art exhibition has been put forward for a Pride of Bucks award.
Dagny Lund, who works as a physio at the Chilterns MS Centre in Wendover, has been nominated for health worker of the year.
For the past 10 years, in addition to her role as a physio treating people with multiple sclerosis, Dagny has organised an art exhibition to raise valuable funds for the centre.
Money raised by the event has been used to further the treatment of people living in Bucks with MS and has attracted thousands of people since it was launched a decade ago.
Dagny is now stepping down from her role and will no longer be organising the event, but it is set to continue each year because it has been so successful.
She has been put forward by Hannah Asquith who also works at the centre, who said: “The exhibition became the annual flagship event in the Chiltern MS Centre’s charity calendar.
“Dagny’s just stepped down after 10 years of organising and 10 exhibitions which have raised between £10,000 and £20,000 each time.”
She added: “I thought with this being 10 years and the fact that Dagny has now stepped down from organising them, that it’s a great time for her to be recognised.
“She has really put in so much effort and done such a fantastic job, and everyone has been so appreciative of the work she has done.
“It’s a real achievement and has made such a difference to the centre in terms of the money raised, and the amount of people who have come along to it.
“I think that now would be the perfect time for her to get an award, and would really show exactly how much everyone thinks of her.”
