Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House Champion

“Annabel Chan has been part of our Seniors Hub Advisory Committee from the very beginning. She is an active volunteer who cares for others in the community. Annabel runs the walking pole club, inspiring seniors to stay active and be healthy. She is friendly, kind and is often finding new ways to engage community residents.

This fall, Annabel and a group of volunteers took some of the most fragile seniors from Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House out to the park for a walk. She scouted several locations before settling on a route that met abilities and made sure to have enough volunteers to pair with senior participants.

Annabel continues helping us shape initiatives to connect isolated seniors in the community to the organization. When an idea comes to mind, she takes charge. She is a source of inspiration to all of us.”
