Staff, volunteers, friends, family and the local community came together to surprise long-standing volunteer Glenis French, 83, at the Sandiacre-based Treetops Hospice Care charity shop where she has been volunteering for 30 years.

The celebration on April 7, was a complete surprise to Glenis who started volunteering for the charity in 1986, initially selling items from a small room based at the hospice in Risley. She moved to helping at the Sandicare shop in Derby Road three years later and has remained there ever since. She said: “I’ve really enjoyed coming here over the years and I’ve got to keep going!”
