Love blossomed through volunteering

Mary and Ron have been together for 10 years

Volunteers Mary and Ronald Nash are proof that taking on a voluntary role really can lead to exciting things.

Mary and Ron met ten years ago through their roles as Volunteer Wayfinders at the then Edith Cavell Hospital in Peterborough, before transferring to Peterborough City Hospital when it opened in 2010. Little did they know it would lead them both to a second chance at love.

Mary said: “When I first began volunteering Ron and I built up an instant rapport and got on really well. I remember telling my daughter that he seemed like a very nice man and that I could imagine us being very good friends.

“We married in August 2009 and he’s absolutely fantastic. We both say that volunteering is the best thing we ever did. We didn’t expect to get a second chance but we did”.

Ron has been a Trust volunteer for twenty years and Mary has recently celebrated ten years voluntary service. Deputy Chief Executive and Finance Director, Caroline Walker presented Mary with a certificate and badge to celebrate her long service.
