Bob is a plumber by trade but, having had to take early retirement for health reasons, has been working with older people in the Bradford area for over 10 years. Bob met Elizabeth through his voluntary work in 2011 and helped to build our community work enabling us to found the organization in 2012. Bob is ‘Bradford born and bred’ and loves his home city and the people who live here. Bob’s very extensive knowledge of life in Bradford is the foundation of our reminiscence work and he is the lead for our Memory Support programme and for local community engagement. Bob has undertaken a number of other voluntary roles with older people in the Bradford area, including the Home from Hospital scheme run by Carers’ Resource, befriending and being a volunteer driver for the Volunteer Centre Bradford and the Alzheimer’s Society and running activity sessions and visiting people at Holmeview in Holme Wood.
