One of Endeavour Foundation’s longest-serving volunteers has retired from the Margate store she has served for a staggering 40 years.
Joyce Connell has stood down from her role as an assistant at the Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing store on the corner of Oxley Ave and Chatham Street in Margate.
Joyce volunteered for four decades in order to help raise funds to support people with a disability.
During this time, she has done every job in the shop from serving customers to dusting the shelves. In fact, the Redcliffe resident has stepped up to the mark with each task asked of her and will be missed enormously by her friends, colleagues and regular customers.
“There is nothing Joyce wouldn’t do and the place won’t be the same without her,” said store manager, Sharon Passey.
“She is a beautiful person and we’re really going to miss her.”
An afternoon tea was held at the store to mark Joyce’s retirement and she was presented with flowers.
Joyce, who turns 71 in June, plans to spend more time with her husband Don, children and grandchildren, as well as doing crosswords and reading.
