Meet the Team. Annette

Hi, if you haven’t met me so far, I am Annette and I joined in September 2021 as Activities and Groups Co-ordinator.

You may have come across me before as I did some fundraising for SRSB with the Prince’s Trust at Sheffield College – but I was very pleased to join the team and have honestly enjoyed every day at work. I have been a teacher for 21 years in various places, and it’s about time I was let out for mostly good behaviour!

I am setting up lots of activities for us, from running with clients, to football, painting classes, horse riding and bowling… and I am looking forward to a time when we can get in ‘Rory the minibus’ and go for a day out or two. Every day is different and I meet such wonderful people – thank you for making me so welcome. I have a reputation for being dog-obsessed, so expect a lot of photos of me being sat on, licked, covered in fur, loved and gazed at by guide dogs at various places. It’s another reason I love my job!

I am training to run a 100km event for SRSB/RSS soon, so if anyone wants to sponsor me here's a link:

Hope to meet you soon!
