A service has been held to celebrate the life of Maundy Relief co-founder Dorothy McGregor on the third anniversary of her death.
The former nun set up the charity with the Rev Len Singleton and Alan Freeman in 1998 and passed away in May 2013 after a brave battle with cancer.
Charity bosses have organised ‘Dorothy Day’ celebrations every year on the anniversary of her death and more than 50 people attended a service at the Maundy Relief Chapel on Wednesday, May 3.
Lucy Hardwick, charity manager, said: “It was a really good day and really well attended.
“It was led by Len Singleton who is our chaplain and one of the original founders so he goes right back to the beginning.
"It was a chance for people to share their memories of when she was young. It was good because it was it was very much about her as a real person rather than people talking about her as a saint and that sort of thing.
"It was about the real Dorothy who we all knew.
“A lot of people found it moving and we had a lot of service users and younger ones so it was a really good mixture.”
The service was followed by a buffet.
