Bringing older and younger
people together

the difference we’ve made

AGM at Wellacre Academy, Flixton.

July 2015

Our thanks go to the staff and pupils of Wellacre Academy for hosting our AGM, which was attended by about 50 volunteers, as well as the Trustees and Coordinators.

Chair Sue Mosco outlined the developments of Intergen-Trafford past, present and future and we received an up to date financial report from the outgoing Treasurer, Steve Kay.

Congratulations and thanks to Claire Romer, who ran the Manchester Marathon in aid of Intergen-Trafford, raising £1000 for the funds.

Speeches were given by Gwyn Williams who spoke about volunteering in general, but specifically relating to his membership of the RNLI, a charity many of us support.

Chris Partington, Slater-Heelis Solicitors also addressed the meeting, and offered volunteers help with writing their wills, if needed!

RETIRING VOLUNTEERS FROM KINGSWAY PRIMARY SCHOOL, MARJORY REECE AND ANNA WESTON

Volunteer, Frank Tolley, a veteran of World War 2 recited his very emotional poem relating to his experiences as a member of RAF bomber command.

His Worship Councillor Holden, Mayor of Trafford, attended and presented those retiring from Intergen-Trafford with certificates and paperweights. He praised the work of Intergen-Trafford in bringing older and younger people together, emphasising the benefits to both the schools supported, and the volunteers.

Amongst those who retired this year were Trustees, Brian Hooley and Steve Kay, and from Kingsway Primary School, Marjory Reece and Anna Weston. Our thanks go to all of them for their support over the years.

Trustees were re- elected and will continue to guide the development of Intergen-Trafford in the future:-

Volunteer Voice
Name: Carol Mounfield

Carol Mounfield is the newest recruit as a coordinator for Intergen
in Timperley.

My name is Carol Mounfield and I am the newest co-ordination for Intergen, covering a new area for Timperley.

I have a 22 year old daughter who has progressed through the Trafford education system, attending Woodheys Primary, and then going onto Sale Grammar.

She graduated from Sheffield Hallam University last year, achieving a 1st degree in Psychology - I'm a very proud mum.

My career has been spent within the advertising and newspaper industry; I currently work for a local newspaper based in Meld, north Wales. Appreciate the need for accuracy and attention to detail within a process and deadline driven environment.

My personal mottos are; ‘2 wrongs don't make a right’; and, ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’
