Meet Tricia, one of the charity’s long-term volunteers. Tricia has been a invaluable part of the charity for many years, having been a former employee, a long-standing volunteer and a friend of St John’s. She has supported our staff and residents at Moorside Dementia Nursing Home for the past five years.
Before becoming a volunteer at Moorside, Tricia worked at Devenish House (the charity’s former care home Southgate Street). She worked there for many years from 1990. After she left the charity’s employment in 2007, Tricia decided to return under a new role and began to volunteer at Devenish House in 2012 until its closure in late 2016.
It was during this time that she also began volunteering at Moorside (from 2014), supporting the Activities Co-Ordinators and staff to carry out their duties and plan events and fun activities for the residents. She also is an active member of our community’s Chapel group and regularly assists with services, led by Revd Alison Dobell.
A big thank you to Tricia for all of your help, guidance and invaluable support since 1990!
