Anne White started working as a volunteer at St Vincent’s Furniture Store in Sheffield just after it opened back in the 1980’s. She has completed nearly 30 years of dedicated service.

After suffering ill health at the beginning of the year Anne has decided to take a well-earned rest and therefore is hanging up her telephone headset and computer mouse. For several years she also sat on the Management Committees of both the Store and St Vincent’s Shop on Abbeydale Road in Sheffield.

Anne attended the Store’s Annual meeting in November and entertained us all with a few hilarious stories on the early years of the Store.

Kevin McCready, Management Committee Chair, and Lorraine Healy, Furniture Store Manager, thanked Anne for all she has done for the Store over the years and also mentioned how much she will be missed by everyone.

A presentation of a statue of St Vincent de Paul was made to Anne, which Anne said she would treasure forever.
