An Acton woman who has dedicated much of her life to volunteer work has been honoured.

Liz Roberts,81, was one of the founders of Volunteer Link and has helped out for 24 years.

The scheme sets to provide individuals in difficulty and who may be isolated and lonely with a volunteer who will visit. Liz has supported many clients taken them to the shops and accompanied them to medical appointments as well as meeting regularly to have a chat.

She's now moving from her home in Acton to be with her family in Lincolnshire.

Rupa Huq MP and Deputy Mayor of Ealing, Abdullah Gulaid, joined volunteer link to present Liz with flowers and thanks.

Rachel Hill, Director of Volunteer Link said, “We are so grateful to Liz for all she has done over the last 24 years. She will be greatly missed by the Volunteer Link Scheme and her current client. We wish her all the best in her new life closer to family in Lincolnshire, where she hopes to volunteer for a similar organisation.”

Liz said that volunteering for the Volunteer Link Scheme has helped her too, she found a fresh purpose following retirement and the loss of her husband and has really enjoyed both her visits and feeling involved with a friendly organisation.

Rupa Huq MP said, “It was a pleasure to meet Liz on Monday. She is a true example of selfless community spirit and Acton will miss her dearly.”
