Nelson care home volunteer recognised for his commitment


Stocks Hall Andrew Smith House in Nelson are delighted to thank one of their loyal, committed volunteers for all his hard work over a long period of time.

Brian Sharples first came to Andrew Smith House when he visited his wife Maureen, who lived at the Home in recent years.  When Maureen sadly passed away, Brian continued to visit the Home, volunteering and supporting in whatever way he could.

Brian currently volunteers at the care home five days a week, for over 2 years now.

Activities Staff, Kirstie Farrer says “Brian is such a caring, compassionate gentleman and a talented musician. Everyone has enjoyed his many gifts and he is well liked by people living at the Home, and staff.”

To recognise and show appreciation for all Brian does, he has been awarded Volunteer of the Month. His photograph will be displayed on the Stocks Hall monthly wall of fame.

Manager, Jayms Bell said “This award cannot convey the depth of gratitude from Stocks Hall towards Brian, but we hope it is something towards showing him, how much he means to us.”

“The real reward remains in the pleasure and joy Brian bring to others lives, day by day. Thank you so much Brian for all you are; all you do and all you give to Andrew Smith House.”
