I have been at Paignton Community Manager since August 2021 & Manager since December 2021. Before this I firstly volunteered and then worked at a charity called Anode, before being employed as Community Manager at The Salvation Army.
Even though I volunteered at Anode, I also received a lot of support from them in that first year. They helped me turn my life around and without their love and support I wouldn’t be who I am today.
It is a privilege to be part of PCL, to be surrounded by the wonderful team and to be part of the journey that many people who come to us are on
I began volunteering at the Community Larder four years ago after retiring from working with the NHS. I attend Barton Baptist Church where I am an active member involved in children’s work, Renew wellbeing and Pastoral care amongst other things! I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Community Larder team. It is a pleasure to meet and interact with those who need our services, giving a listening ear when needed.
