Elaine O’Brien (8th May 2021)
It was a real pleasure to interview Elaine and hear about her role as a voluntary fund raiser for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. I certainly learnt a lot about the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and what a dedicated service it is, saving lives from the very, very young to the not so young.
Elaine also talked about a wide range of subjects including tailoring, pensions, community nursing, Airbnb, the Commoners Choir and we met Peanut a Lhasa Apso and Chesney who is ‘a very soft cat’
A nice easy listening chat.
