Meet the Year’s Community Champions: Ruth Sennett

From TDC's Sue Sayers

Ruth has run the Winter Warmers Reminiscing Group for many years now and it offers a friendly once a month meeting for older people where everyone is encouraged to talk about their memories and  listen to each other. She encourages every member to take a small part in helping the meetings to run smoothly.

Each year she makes funding applications to ensure the group can continue to meet and take outings together alongside their monthly meetings and has built up trusted relationships with her funders,

During Covid when they were unable to meet Ruth made regular telephone contact with all her members checking on their welfare and cascading useful information. She made sure the group was Covid safe once they were allowed to meet again and supported less confidant members to return.

She is a very kind and caring member of her community and deserves to be recognised for her voluntary work.
