On 4th November, President Elect Sue was honoured for her work at Abbeyfield. Due to the impending Lockdown (starting 5th November), the event was smaller than planned for such an auspicious occasion.
The ceremony took place in All Saints Church, Clifton where it was possible to self-distance. Two representatives from Abbeyfield presented Sue with a stylish broch, a framed certificate and a large bouquet of flowers. Following a thanks from Sue, a toast was given in Champagne. Congratulations Sue – a truly worthy recognition of your commitment and service to Abbeyfield; first as a volunteer, then as a staff member and now as a volunteer.
Sue’s Certificate reads:
“In grateful recognition of your outstanding and valued commitment to the care of older people, in particular for your incredible 45 years of commitment to Abbeyfield in the Bristol area and beyond, and for using your experience and wisdom to support other people in their roles.” It is signed: Charles, HRH the Prince of Wales.
