Margaret Tetley volunteers at our Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice and is pictured here at our awards last year where she won the “Unsung Hero Volunteer Award”!
Margaret made a huge impact in the hospice’s wards, taking the drinks to and chatting with patients, bringing the outside world into the hospice with her positive personality. When the hospice opened its Day Therapy drop-in service at Airedale Hospital, Margaret was the first to offer help, and has been known to support the Rehabilitation Team at short notice, helping patients establish their identities during difficult times. Margaret is also part of a local fundraising group who’ve raised over £6k for the charity.
Rachael Sharples, Sue Ryder Therapy Team Lead said: “What a star Margaret is; always cheerful, but with emotional awareness and a listening ear. Margaret has time for everyone and makes both patients and supporting staff feel welcome and at ease."
Thank you Margaret!
