TRUSTEES and supporters of homelessness charity Shiloh celebrated the work of the charity’s founder as they prepare to officially open their new home.
Sue Savage was presented with a card, a gift and a cake to mark her 25 years of service.
Shiloh is in the process of moving from Westgate in the town centre into its new base at Station Road, Masbrough.
John McDonnell, chairman of trustees, invited an array of helpers past and present to salute Sue's service to disadvantaged adults down the years.
“It was always our intention to pay our own in-house tribute to Sue as soon as we could following our move,” said John.
“The contribution Sue has made in helping the lives of so many people has been amazing, done out of a real love for them.”
John’s tribute was echoed by other speakers, including other Shiloh long servers cook Stuart Dodson and retired former operations manager Jonathan Lang, both of whom worked alongside Sue in the early days in an old cafe on Vicarage Lane.
Shiloh is gearing up for an open day on July 22.
