Volunteers call it a day after more than 25 years each.
TWO volunteers have retired after more than 50 years’ combined service at Budleigh Salterton Hospital.
Betty Downing and Anne Bentley assisted in the hospital’s day unit for 28 and 26 years respectively.
Staff organised a tea party to mark their retirement.
Di Walker, matron, said: “Their dedication to the day unit has been truly amazing and we can always depend on them to turn up, whatever the weather!
“They have been a huge help to the nursing team by organising games and activities, and kept us all entertained with their stories, banter and fun-loving spirit.
“Budleigh Salterton day Unit will miss Betty and Anne, and we would like to wish them both a very happy retirement.”
