“In 1994 I went to work for a local hotelier as a cook.  In 1997, along with my late husband, we bought the hotel in North Wales. After my late husband’s death I took over the running of the hotel and also qualified as a chef.  In 2007 I left the hotel and started a catering business and also became a School Cook.  Shortly afterwards I decided to retire and, as I had time on my hands, I was asked by the Chairperson of the Fundraising Committee of the charity to become a Volunteer Visitor.  I did and really enjoy visiting and being able to help those who have sought help from the charity.”
