Celebrating You: A Tribute to our Longest-Serving Volunteers


We are delighted to share that seven of our volunteer members have reached some outstanding milestones this year. Incredibly, our longest-serving members have been with us from 40 to 54 years.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Joy Wanlass, Jean Marsh, Anne Wills, Teresa Saunders, John McCormick, Bernie Brunning and Janet Ward for their dedication and support throughout the years. Together they have given 328 years to Marriage Care and have supported couples across the country from North East Hants to Newcastle, serving in nearly 20 different roles!

Please see below for our tribute video, which includes a message from our President Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, and tributes from friends and colleagues.

We also want to thank each one of our volunteers who generously give their time, and make our work possible.
