I was asked to join the Board of Trustees some four years ago. This was something entirely new to me but I have found it to be very rewarding.

It has been a great way for me to feel that I am ‘giving something back ‘. I listen to the discussion from the point of view of carers and my contributions are well received.

Carr Gomm currently supports a close family member of mine and I have had other care responsibilities in the past. I started out by nursing many years ago and then moved to running a small property company.

Nowadays retirement keeps me busy! I walk and swim, enjoy books, films and catching up with good friends. Grandchildren are a joy.
