REMEMBERING DOROTHY McDONALD
Sadly we lost one of our longest serving Trustees to Covid-19 early in April.
Dorothy McDonald - seen on the left, front row, in the above photo of the opening of our new premises in January.
We pay tribute to her dedication and support for our organisation here - and her commitment to older people in Wolverhampton.
She spent her lifetime working as a nurse and midwife and although in her early 80's, was always full of life and joy.
