Today we are paying tribute to Lorraine Walker, a much-loved member of Approach staff who sadly passed away on 12th May 2020. Although we will not all be able to attend Lorraine’s funeral due to the current restrictions, we still wish to pay our respects and let Lorraine’s family and friends know how much she was loved and admired by her colleagues, volunteers and the many people she supported through her work at Approach.
Lorraine worked at Approach for over 8 years as Support Worker, Group Officer and Volunteer Officer, she was always selfless in her support, always thinking about others before herself. Even during the last few weeks of her final illness, she was keen to help – offering to buy wool so that a friend could knit items for the hospital neonatal unit.
A colleague offered this tribute: “Lorraine was a true professional who put her heart and soul into her job and this was reflected in the love and respect she earned from all who knew her and came into contact with her. She was funny, warm, vivacious and beautiful.”
thank you Lorraine, rest in peace x
