March’s volunteer is the lovely Jo Dolbear (Pearce).
Jo was a full time carer for her late husband and experienced first hand how important peer support was as an unpaid carer. Since then, Jo has been supporting carers on Portland by running the Portland Carers’ Support Group.
Jo has also devoted considerable time to campaigning against the closure of respite care on the Island and the local community hospital – all done at the same time as supporting a range of individuals with their care needs, simply out of the kindness of her own heart.
A true superstar and more than deserving of a treat.
On behalf of the Portland community and all the team here at ICA, we would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU!
