Who are the people that make up the Link Centre?
Staff spotlight this month is on Wendy, our part-time Office Manager, who has been with us for 7 years. Outside of work, Wendy spends a lot of her time singing - the office is often filled with the sound of whatever Brighton Festival Chorus is rehearsing (currently Dream of Gerontius!). If not singing, she can be found looking for bargains at jumble sales, boot fairs and charity shops. A very resourceful asset to the organisation!
