Long Service Awards

At our AGM held in February 2015, the Committee of Three Rivers Talking Newspaper (3RTN) recognised the efforts of four volunteers who have devoted countless hours to our charity since its foundation twenty four years ago.

Special thanks were given to former Treasurer, Joan Wuyts, who co-founded 3RTN along with her late husband and Bungay stalwart, David Wuyts.  Also honoured were Pete and Pam Martin, and Rita Clarke.    All four were presented with framed long-service certificates and were personally thanked by the Chairman, Helen Kirby.  “We are much indebted to our four colleagues for their years of dedication in helping to prepare, record and distribute our talking newspaper.  Joan has been involved with Three Rivers right from the outset and, aside from her role as Treasurer, carried out several other duties and was a constant support to her late husband and our former President, David”, she said.  “Similarly, Rita was our publicity officer and later served as Chairman, while Peter and his wife Pam will always be remembered for the wonderful fundraising lunches they held at their home.  All four have been an inspiration to those of us following in their footsteps.”
