Lunch Club Organiser

Virginia Lowes (Small)Virginia Lowes has been working at St Mary’s for 4 years. With a background in Information Technology and Social Work and a degree in Psychology she now runs the weekly lunch club for anyone over 60 years of age.

She enjoys the immediacy and challenge of the role, working with a diverse group of clients and a team of volunteers. She is inspired by the stories that continue to unfold from the group (especially when children from the local school or the students from the English classes occasionally join the lunch club) and she encourages everyone to contribute their writing to a regular newsletter and Life Writing projects.

She regularly takes photographs of the group.
