Local resident Corrine Samuels was commended for her 40 years’ service to The Nicky Alliance Centre.
A special afternoon tea was held at the Nicky Alliance Centre to mark Corrine Samuel’s longstanding work with the charity. Her service began as a secretary for Manchester Jewish Blind Society based at Louis Glancy House in Higher Crumpsall. In 1987, the organisation evolved to become The Nicky Alliance Day Centre, which seeks to improve the quality of life of older, disabled and vulnerable people in the Jewish community. Corrine continued in her role, becoming an assistant to the social worker and then Meals on Wheels coordinator, a job she carries out to this day.
Presenting Corrine with a specially commissioned crystal memento, chief executive, Michelle Wiseman said: “I want to thank Corrine of behalf of all our staff, members and volunteers for the valuable work she has done for Manchester Jewish Community Care, originally the Jewish Blind Society and now developed into The Nicky Alliance Centre, providing an essential service to a wider group of people.
“Corrine continues to work relentlessly coordinating Meals on Wheels and liaising with the kitchen staff at The Centre, to ensure members get the right meals at the right time. We owe her a huge vote of thanks.”
“I thoroughly enjoy working at The Nicky”, said Corrine. “We are still distributing around 100 meals a week so there is still a demand for our service and I am delighted to still be involved in facilitating this.”
