In October, Resthaven Westbourne Park residents and staff fondly farewelled volunteer, Mrs Colin Edwards, who has volunteered with Resthaven for 15 years.
‘For 15 years Col has supported the School for Seniors group and has been a breath of fresh air and will be
dearly missed,’ says Volunteer Services Manager, Stacey Thompson.
‘We farewelled her with a lovely morning tea and presentation of flowers with gifts including of a cup and
saucer set, for fond memories of School for Seniors morning teas. It was a really lovely send off for Col.’
Lifestyle Coordinator, Verona Rix, says, ‘In her volunteer role, each Tuesday morning Col has supported the
School for Seniors group, a regular class with interesting presentations and weekly guest speakers.’
‘Even though Col has decided to retire, we are delighted to hear that she’ll still pop in to listen to the School
for Seniors presentations from time to time.’
Col says, ‘Thank you for my farewell as a voluntary worker. I love my gifts!’
Farewell, Col, and all the best in your well-earned retirement.
