Betty Deason, 86, retires
Having worked as a volunteer at the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home in West Sussex for the past 25 years, Betty Deason was a recent finalist in the “Unsung Heroes” awards run by P&G Professional.
Betty has organised, stocked and managed the residents’ sweet trolley two mornings per week, completing 25 years unbroken service in March this year. In that time there have been less than a dozen occasions when, through sickness, Betty has been unable to operate her little shop on wheels. She retired as an unpaid volunteer in March, aged 86.
