Mount Carmel CEO, Ruth Allonby celebrated her 30th year working at Mount Carmel in January.
Many people participated to congratulate her on the amazing work that she has done and continues to do to make Mount Carmel such an amazing place to recover from addiction and move on to live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives without alcohol. Graduates made videos telling her how she and Mount Carmel had changed their lives and what they are doing now.
Many clients, including some from over 20 years ago and some from our move-on house loving the support and brand-new lives they are living, took the time to talk about their wonderful sober lives! Also sending Ruth messages of congratulation were our Patron John Taylor (Duran Duran), who is a huge part of our family and Rosena Allin-Khan, our MP and Shadow Minister for Mental Health, who is a supporter and friend, even the Mayor, Sadiq Khan took the time to congratulate Ruth and MC on all the help and incredible contribution that we make to the community.
All hoping that we’ll be able to hold our annual BBQ, Christmas carols and various get-togethers throughout the year again soon, which are all being sorely missed during these difficult times.
