As a community campaigner for over 10 years, Trudy worked on getting superfast broadband into Bootle and the surrounding area.
Improving mobile and internet connectivity will make a huge difference to the quality of lives and our ability to do business in a global market. Access and connectivity are key enablers, particularly in our rural area.
Trudy said: "I know that we need better broadband across Copeland and rural Cumbria. With your support I’ll be able to work with BT and the Government to do what I did in Bootle for homes and businesses right across west Cumbria."
