I have worked in the health and social care industry for most of my working life. Helping to make a difference to people’s lives is the greatest gift I can leave as a legacy. Whenever and who ever I meet I like to believe I have given hope to. In this role as befriending coordinator I have met some amazing people, both clients and volunteers I have recruited. I can never get bored of hearing clients’ accounts of their exploits either in WW2, or something they have achieved in later life, every account is valuable to me. Each person I meet and talk to has enriched my life and grown my understanding of human nature.
