Susan Celebrates Retirement

Susan Celebrates Retirement

Fife Alcohol Support Service (FASS) are celebrating the service of a long serving volunteer.

Susan Hannah, of Kirkcaldy, first joined FASS in 2001 while still continuing her day to day role as a teacher. Susan, wishing to continue working within the local community, applied to be a volunteer counsellor with FASS providing specialist alcohol counselling for people, aged 16 and over, who find themselves in difficulty because of alcohol-related problems at various locations in Fife.

Susan said: “Volunteering as a Counsellor with FASS over an extended period has been a stimulating and rewarding experience. It is sometimes challenging but always fulfilling. The rewards come from working with clients, from many and varied backgrounds, to facilitate and support them achieve a more positive future in all aspects of their lives. Working with the excellent and supportive team at FASS and their clients has been a pleasure and a privilege.”

Jim Bett, Service Manager, of FASS said; “We are sad to say goodbye to Susan after 18 years as dedicated and committed volunteer. As a local charity, we are unable to provide a service without the time, expertise and enthusiasm offered by our volunteers. Susan was a wonderful volunteer for FASS. Through her counselling, she helped more than 250 very vulnerable people. We will miss Susan and wish her all the very best for her retirement.”
