Lindsey has been supported in South Aberdeen and Shire for over 12 years. She has always had a keen interest in keeping fit and active.  Her limited mobility certainly does not stop her from working hard on her fitness goals.

During the COVID lockdown Lindsey began working with a personal trainer doing weekly Zoom video calls. Lindsey worked hard and raised over £2,000 for Cornerstone, by walking a total of 9975 metres in her walking aid, by taking on Captain Tom’s Walking Challenge. You can read more about this here!

She swims every week and has a new personal trainer who she trains with in the gym and is always positive and willing to try new ways to adapt her workouts. Her personal trainer is incredibly pleased with how hard she works and how she is always up for trying new exercises. Spending time on her fitness has given her the confidence, ability, and drive to reach her goals and meet new people who share the same hobby.

Lindsey really enjoys fundraising and would love to complete more fundraising events such as the Kiltwalk in her wheelchair and Swimathons to continue to raise money for Cornerstone.

All this hard work lead to Lindsey being announced the winner for South Aberdeen and Shire Mary WIlliamson Award at the Cornerstone Star Awards 2023!
