Our latest Heart of Glasgow winner is Julie Bradley, who volunteers as a Helper Befriender for Marie Curie.
Julie was nominated by Katie Wardlaw, Volunteer coordinator for the charity, who told us ‘Julie has volunteered with us for two years and has been invaluable to the service and the clients she supports.’
Her work involves visiting clients regularly to provide emotional support and companionship. During lockdown she continued to support clients virtually.
Julie was overwhelmed to receive the award, and told us that she became a volunteer after losing her own Mum to cancer. This sense of giving back is exactly what our Heart of Glasgow awards celebrate.
