John Thexton, volunteer

I am almost 90 and have lived in Gosforth since 2013.  I have been involved with Silverline Memories for 8 years, initially obtaining support during my late wife’s declining years of Alzheimer’s but after her passing, I became a volunteer, to reciprocate the help we had received.

My main contribution began in the original Covid lock-down year, when physical meetings were stopped, and technology came to our aid, producing a Zoom-led “Doodle Art” session.  I still lead Doodle Art each week.
