Enyd Carroll has been a volunteer at the Llynfi Valley Credit Union for over 20 years and she is going to celebrate her birthday in April - she will be 101!
Enyd started volunteering when she retired over 40 years ago.
She was looking for something to do to fill her time and keep her
active and busy in retirement, so she started volunteering at
Bethania Chapel as the Treasurer and at Maesteg Citizens Advice
The Credit Union has been in the Llynfi Valley for over 20 years
and Enyd has been involved from the very beginning, always being
there to provide help and support when needed. She continues to
volunteer every week and rarely misses, providing support to
individuals that are looking to save money on a regular basis or
help with a loan. Enyd still adds up the daily takings on paper and
never uses a calculator always wanting to keep her mind
Awarded a 'Highly Commended' Certificate at BAVO's Bridgend
Volunteer Achievement Awards in 2014, Enyd says: 'Volunteering
has given me the opportunity to meet new people, keeping me busy
and in contact with the community I know. I enjoy helping young
mums and families to become more financially secure.'
Mandy Evans, Manager at Llynfi Credit Union said: 'Enyd has a
real empathy for people and that is what makes her such a valued
member of our volunteer team.'
