     During the Second World War, Maureen served with the Women’s Royal Naval Service and as an 18 year-old was a signaller for American ships dispatched from Belfast Lough to Normandy. Moved by the example of Captain Sir Tom Moore to make her own contribution to the battle with the corona virus, she has walked 95 miles by her 95th birthday, raising over £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, the charity she supported in memory of her late husband George, who died from cancer in 1987.
     Maureen was personally congratulated on her award by Prime Minister Boris Johnson at Hillsborough Castle in Northern Ireland on 13th June 2020.
     The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Brandon Lewis said “Maureen’s 95 mile walk ahead of her 95th birthday,which raised an incredible £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support, is an inspiration to us all. I am certain that her late husband George would be incredibly proud of what she has achieved in his memory."
