GLRFCA IWD2020 Campaign

The Greater London Reserve Forces Cadets Association (GLRFCA) kicked off its campaign in the run up to International Women's Day 2020 with an interview with FANY Laura Lean. See more here.

Meet Laura Lean from the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY).

"I joined the FANY to serve the community, to learn new skills, to take on new challenges, to meet liked minded people.

Spending 10 years in the Corps has given me opportunities that I would have never have had if I hadn’t joined, for example I have had the extraordinary privilege of gaining my parachute wings with the French army. But it also gives me the opportunity to give back to society.

It's always hard being part of a response team to a major incident but I know that our work has a real impact on those affected by incidents such as the 2019 London Bridge attack and 2017 Grenfell fire.”
