Keeping Our People Connected: Beryl
16 September 2020
Meet Beryl. She is a Carpenters Group "living legend" and spent her entire life carrying out missionary work. She retired recently at 80 after joining us aged 63, serving 17 years!
Since retirement, she has continued to focus on her amazing missionary and charity work. During lockdown she has spent her time sewing scrubs for ScrubHub Liverpool, who provide them to local NHS and key workers, and counselling refugee women remotely for a charity & knitting clothes for their babies.
We are very proud to be able to support Beryl with these efforts, as well as keep in touch with friends and ex-colleagues, by providing a Carpenters Group iPad. It was delivered by 3rd Line IT Technician, Luke, who has volunteered to give her weekly lessons.
Here's what people had to say:
So much bad stuff at moment but here’s some good especially if you’re a ‘Beryl’ fan like me! That 80+ ex-missionary/secretary @CarpentersGroup got her IPad today so she can continue her charitable work whilst she shields. If you’ve always helped others, why let Covid stop you💪 pic.twitter.com/XheUXlbpoA— Donna Scully (at 🏡) (@Donna_Scully) September 11, 2020
