I have been linked with the Ursulines since the age of 11 when I went to school at the Ursuline Convent, Wimbledon. Even at that age we were encouraged to be of service to others. Since retiring from teaching I have been able to spend time doing voluntary work with the Christian arm of the Olympics, an African charity and in a food bank.
I have loved working with Ursuline Links since it began in 2010 and have accompanied two groups to New Orleans and a group to Idaho. It is wonderful to see how enthusiastic the students are at the projects and also how deeply they think when reflecting about the day at work on the site.
