What is your role within the community?

I am retired now but involved with many voluntary groups Community Health Ambassadors included. I run my own Widowed/Divorced group in Ingleby Barwick which I started when I lost my husband and also involved with the Stockton on Tees Over 50's Forum which deals with all issues for the over 50's. I go out with ipads to Dementia groups to get them engaged and help the carers in any way. I am also a self-published author as well.

Why did you want to become a Community Health Ambassador?

I want to help people from all walks of life and through the many groups I am involved with I hope I make a difference.

What is your favourite quote/saying or motto in life?

Live life to the fullest as we don't know what is round the corner.
