AN 82-YEAR-OLD Eastbourne woman who still enjoys working at a local charity every week has been named September’s Resident of the Month.
Joyce Ford has volunteered at the People Matter charity three days a week for the past 10 years, advising job seekers and helping with their CVs.
To recognise Joyce’s dedication, she has been presented with the Resident of the Month Award, which is sponsored by Advanta Chartered Accountants and the Eastbourne Herald.
Richard King, director at Advanta, met Joyce this week to present her with a certificate of recognition.
Richard said, “Many people in their 80s enjoy a slower pace of life, but not Joyce. She has continued helping job seekers of all ages and is an inspiration to us all. She is a very deserving winner of the Resident of the Month award.”
Joyce and her guest are now looking forward to a complimentary meal for two at Ridgways restaurant in Meads.
