December 2020 at the Rainbow Centre saw two major milestones for our amazing manager Trish. Early in December Trish and her husband Tommy reached their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Tommy is a familiar figure at the Rainbow Centre as he helps us out in so many different ways and it was lovely that they were able to have a small, Covid-safe celebration in St. Peter’s church next door, where they married 50 years ago.
The 16th December (the day of our take-away Christmas lunch no less!) was Trish’s 70th birthday. She began working at the Rainbow over twenty years ago as volunteer co-ordinator before working her way up to deputy manager and for the last ten years, manager. Her dedication and service to the centre and surrounding community has been recognised this week with the winning of the UK Smile Maker Award, which she was pleased and proud to accept. Congratulations Trish!
