Sheffield Chamber President and Mum Support SCCCC’s Good Neighbour Scheme
Steve Manley, President of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and his mum, Bridget made a special visit to meet 92 year old Alma who benefits from the Good Neighbour Scheme, friendly visiting at local charity SCCCC.
When the charity was chosen as the Sheffield Chamber’s charity of the year 2018/19 Steve discovered that his mum was a Good Neighbour Friendly visitor on the scheme back in the 1970’s and used to take little Steve along on the visits. He was about 3 years old.
This month Steve and Bridget came back to SCCCC over 40 years later and went along for a cuppa and a chat with Alma. Having lived in India, Alma moved to England and made a life for herself and her two sons in Sheffield. Alma, who now lives alone, has been visited for 3 years by volunteer, Maggie Henderson, on the Good Neighbour Scheme.
