Trudy, Support Worker for Spring of Hope Women's Night Shelter, joined the team in November 2016. Almost a year later, we thought it was high time we asked her a bit about herself.
What were you doing before you joined CCM?
Before I joined CCM I was at home caring for a family member. Prior to that I was a teaching assistant.
What made you apply for the role?
I was encouraged by Christian friends and family to apply. I was already volunteering and was so encouraged by the work here.
What has been the highlight of the job so far?
I think one highlight so far is seeing the positive difference a safe and peaceful night's sleep can make to some of the ladies who come to us from such desperate situations. And, of course, working with Val!
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I enjoy playing guitar in the church music group, I sew and I've got myself some canvasses to paint on. I haven't painted for a few years so it's going to be interesting.
