Volunteer Jenny is a winner!

One of Borders Care Voice’s most dedicated and active service user representatives is the winner of this year’s local Long Service to Volunteering Award.

Jenny Mushlin was declared the winner at the Loving Our Volunteers awards event in Kelso on 14th February, organised by Volunteer Centre Borders (VCB).

Jenny is the chair of the Mental Health and Wellbeing Forum. She is also Secretary of Fountainhall Village Hall, Secretary of Stow Community Council, and a Board member of Borderline and New Horizons.

She was nominated by our Mental Health Development Worker, Shirley Barrett, who said: “Jenny selflessly gives up her time to support and campaign for people with mental ill health, trying to improve their quality of life, whilst working towards securing a better experience for them and others in the future.”

Everyone at Borders Care Voice is delighted with this recognition of Jenny’s hard work and dedication and we congratulate her on this latest achievement.
