ANGELA Hunter is just the sort of inspiring person to make us all feel good this Christmas.
Despite being told that she would never be fit enough to work with disabled people, Angela has done just that for 32 years.
Now, after decades of dedicated service to the Hollybank Trust, Angela has retired from her job as head of speech and language therapy at the school and home for people with profound disabilities.
She says that overcoming her disability, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome – a connective tissue disorder – helped fulfil her dream of working with disabled people.
Angela has contributed greatly to improving many lives and in doing so has been a beacon to others proving that with determination, there is much that can be achieved.
She has been a well loved and much admired member of the Hollybank community and though she will be missed, her skill will ensure that those who are left behind will continue her inspiring work.
