A RED Cross volunteer who gave up her free time for nearly 60 years to help the charity has been honoured following her death.

Pam Stinson, of Firth Park, Sheffield, worked as a volunteer for 58 years before she died in November at the age of 77.

Now in recognition of her commitment to the charity, a training room at the Red Cross offices, Brightside Lane, Attercliffe, has been named after her.

First aid will be taught in the room.

Pam’s friends and relatives attended a ceremony where a plaque bearing her name on the training room door was unveiled.

Pam was a member of the Red Cross first aid team which attended events around the county – and she was still volunteering at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena the week before she died.

Her funeral was attended by Red Cross staff and volunteers from across Yorkshire.

In another tribute following her death, she was remembered with a one-minute round of applause before a Sheffield Steelers’ game at the arena.

Ian Temple, Red Cross operations director, said: “Pam was an incredible volunteer and a lovely lady.”
