Valerie – Flemingdon Park Ministry

Flemingdon Park - Valerie (480x800)Valerie volunteers as the food bank receptionist on Thursdays. When she is not busy helping others, she enjoys spending time at Flemingdon Park Ministry. “I make new friends and I like the people here. I get bored at home but here there is always someone to talk to, a free coffee and a friendly face.”

Valerie helps to care for her aging mother and she worries about what will happen when her mother is gone. “Whenever I am worried, I know that I can come here. Helena (The Rev. Helena Houldcroft), Banazir, Kate and even Mac (The Rev. MacIvan Rogers) are great to talk to. They have become my close friends and my second family. They are a great support team.”

Valerie’s wish for the New Year is for a world without violence
