London Community Chaplaincy
Betty Poole has been a faithful volunteer at the Chaplaincy for decades. We have been blessed by her leadership as Chair of the Board for the past 10 years. Throughout these years, Betty could be found in a number of places-driving residents to the food bank, helping a child during an art class, serving a meal in youth program, as well as skillfully chairing all our meetings. A humble, gifted and faithful servant, we want to thank Betty for her many years of service and her example of love and compassion to others. While we will miss Betty, we are grateful for all her investment and her continued willingness to be part of the Chaplaincy in new ways. Thank you Betty-you are a true blessing. (From the Spring 2019 Chaplaincy Newsletter).
Congratulations, Betty, on also receiving the Helen Keller Fellowship Award presented by the Lambeth Lions this past winter.
