There wasn't a dry eye in the room! Angela Gowdy BEM, our volunteer won the Home-Start UK Home Visiting Volunteer Award and the overall Volunteer Award.

Angela is an incredible 92 years young, has been with us for 27 years and is still going strong.

Mhairi Philip, Manager at Home-Start Garioch, said “I am so pleased that Angela has received this recognition. What makes her stand out is her passion, enthusiasm, and sense of fun. She inspires confidence in everyone she meets whether its new volunteers, parents or children. Every Home-Start organisation should have an Angela."

Angela is a much loved and valued volunteer with Home-Start Garioch.  She came to Home-Start in 1996 when she retired from Paeditric nursing.

Angela has worn many hats over the years at Home-Start Garioch. She has been Chair and Vice Chair of our Board of Trustess.  Currently she is our Volunteer Representative on the Board and  sits on the Strategic Planning group. 

Her favourite role is as a home visiting volunteer. 

A much deserved recognition for the valuable work she does.
