Meet Moira – a volunteer with our Positive Achievers Group in Newry who spends her spare time helping people make their dreams come true.
Moira, who has been working with us as a volunteer since 2011, has supported members of the group to go on a day cruise to Scotland, visit the Butlers chocolate factory in Dublin and go on a weekend break to Bundoran. She was previously a member of staff in Newry, so has a wealth of experience.
Moira volunteers every Thursday morning but often takes part in activities outside her regular hours.
Keri Dickson, Service Co–ordinator, said: “Moira has a firm and positive relationship with each of the people we support and volunteers in a very person–centred way. When planning activities, she ensures that they will be thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. She’s a very much appreciated and valued member of our team.”
