To honour our dear friend and colleague, Evelyn Kiernan, who sadly lost her battle with cancer at age 52, we will pause service for a one-minute silence at 11.30 today (Monday, 12 July).

Evelyn started with Edinburgh Trams as a Tram Driver and quickly progressed to become a key member of the Training Team. Over the last eight years, Evelyn helped hundreds of Tram Drivers achieve their dreams.

Despite her long battle, Evelyn never failed to remain positive and always had a smile for anyone. She continued to be employed as a Senior Driver Trainer and supported the organisation whenever she was able to.

Lea Harrison, Managing Director at Edinburgh Trams said:

“Our thoughts are very much with Evelyn’s family and friends at this time.

“It was my great privilege to have known Evelyn and have benefitted from the expertise she brought. On behalf of everyone at Edinburgh Trams, I can honestly say she will be sorely miss and her absence felt for a long time to come.

"Evelyn’s wish was for people to wear purple on the day so you may see some of our colleagues wearing purple and our social media channels change too.”

If you’d like to support those suffering with cancer or their loved ones, please consider donating to the Breast of Friends & Family charity.
