On leaving teacher training college I worked as a teacher in St Joseph’s Comprehensive School, Newport teaching Religious Education and Dance and drama.
When I left secondary school teaching I did a course to enable me to work in Community Education. I worked in primary schools with parents and children on Family learning programmes, I also taught Basic skills to adults and worked with Adults with learning difficulties.
Now I am retired I volunteer in the Parish Office of St Mary’s church on Stow Hill. I also attend mass in Cardiff prison and get a chance to talk to the men about their faith and hopes for the future.
When I read an article about Eden Gate in the Argus I became a volunteer and last year became a trustee of the charity.
