James Lynes

James has been an Ambassador since 2014. He is an avid fan of Dame Vera Lynn and became involved with the Charity following a visit to our service. 

He has put on a number of small events in his home town in Cornwall and throughout the country to raise money for our Charity and has also sold raffle tickets and Christmas cards on our behalf. James has attended our annual Balls with his family and the 100th Birthday celebration for Dame Vera Lynn at the London Palladium.  

James, who is partially sighted, has taken on his own challenges to raise funds for our Charity.  Firstly, abseiling 100ft down the side of a building in 2013 and jumping out of a plane in a tandem-skydive in July 2018 which has raised over £1,300. This is an amazing achievement and we are extremely grateful for his continued support in raising funds and awareness of our Charity.  

James is always willing to help in any way he can and actively promotes the Charity through social media and on the Dame Vera Lynn Appreciation Society facebook page.
