Local man honoured for decades of volunteering

SOUTHPORT resident Eric Greaves hangs up his hat this week, after spending nearly three decades volunteering at local care home, MHA Connell Court, on Weld Road, Southport.

Eric's dedication to the home and its residents was celebrated at a party hosted by Connell Court, on Tuesday, 10 January 2017. Friends, family and residents were in attendance, as well as MHA's volunteer co-ordinator, who manages all the organisation's volunteers nationwide.

MHA Connell Court was opened in 1976, and Eric has been a key player there since he retired from work in 1991. He has been heavily involved in fundraising for the home, organising tea parties, coffee mornings and garden parties as well as being instrumental in Connell Court's 40th Birthday Celebrations, in 2017.

Mr Greaves, or 'The Banker' as he is known to some residents, also gives up much of his time to help those who live at the home, to manage their bank accounts and finances.

Anna Harvey, Manager at Connell Court said:- "Eric has been a valued part of our team here for decades and his warmth and compassion will be missed by everyone. Over the years he's touched the lives of countless residents and we hope that the retirement party will go a small way to thanking him for all his hard work.  Although we'll be sad to see him go, we're sure that he'll enjoy the next chapter at MHA retirement living development, Adlington House in Otley. From all of us at MHA; thank you, Eric and good luck with the next step!"
