As the organisers of the Women of the Year awards we were so upset to hear of the passing of Christine Andain after battling a long term illness, she was the Inspirational Woman runner up in 2013. Liverpool is much the poorer and less bright without her in it.
When she walked into a room the whole space lit up and when in conversation with you, she never ceased looking straight into your eyes, as if you were the only person that mattered even in a crowded room.
With that unforgettable toothy smile, that was so beguiling, Christine had the ability to make you involuntary feel happy and warm inside. Yes, Liverpool is now a much poorer place without that warmth and smile.
Our heartfelt wishes go out to Christine’s family and many friends.
With best wishes
Jean, Ellie and Elaine
