Recruitment Manager /NSW State Manager /Acting NT and WA State Manager /Angel Freight Manager
Hello everyone, my name is Wendy I’m 56, I’m a widow and a mother to 4 adult children, Chris, Jason, Stephanie and Brandon, 1 daughter in law Peng (who is married to son Chris), and one gorgeous granddaughter Amelia whose parents are Stephanie and her partner Corey. We have 3 fur babies Rottweilers Brutus, Liah and Buddy, I live in a little country town in the Hunter Valley Area of NSW. I first joined Angel Gowns for Australian Angel Babies Inc, back in July/August 2014 not long after it started, when the group popped up in my newsfeed on Facebook one night, I joined as a knitter and crocheter. I have been very lucky with my pregnancies even carried my twins right up to 37 weeks, before the Dr said "Well that’s it, there’s no more room for these two" and booked me in to be induced.
During my time with the charity, I have taken on some important managerial roles besides my love for knitting and crocheting, I now manage all our freight bookings, watermarking the photos, Recruiting Volunteer Manager, I’m also the Public Officer and Vice President, I’m State Manager for NSW and acting Manager for some other states and there’s always a lot of behind the scenes work that needs to be done. I have learnt so much while doing these roles, things I didn’t know I would need. I love getting to know our volunteers and have formed long lasting friendships and enjoy our daily chats.
My time with Angel Gowns for Australian Angel Babies Inc, is now shared with babysitting my beautiful granddaughter Amelia 3 to 4 times a week, which I thoroughly enjoy, this girl sure knows how to keep her Nan Nan on her toes.
