Despite COVID-19 restrictions a few of us were able to gather for Afternoon Tea at the Harris Hotel to mark Katie Ann Mackinnon’s 20 years as administrative assistant with Western Isles Community Care Forum. Katie Ann was joined by her former Manager, John Maclean who was the first Co-ordinator of the Forum, Peggy his successor and some other colleagues and friends from Harris. Due to the circumstances colleagues from Barra, Uist and Lewis were unable to be present, but sent their good wishes.
Morag Munro MBE, Chair of WICCF, paid tribute to Katie Ann’s staying power, but commented it could not compete with her staying power with Harris CAB, which dates back 34 years! Katie Ann has given consistent, committed support to the Forum over the years. She had brought many qualities to the Forum, her knowledge – being with the CAB was an added bonus – her measured judgement and wisdom as well as an extraordinary memory for phone numbers! She was presented with a voucher and flowers with the good wishes of the Forum.
