The Western Health and Social Care Trust has hosted the last Mayor of Derry City Council Brenda Stevenson at an informal reception at Trust Headquarters and presented her with an honorary Staff Recognition Award.

Paying tribute to the Mayor, who works for the Trust in its Speech and Language Therapy Department, Chairman Gerry Guckian said: “I want to thank Brenda for being an absolutely wonderful ambassador for the Trust in all she has done as Mayor.

“We will never be party political but Brenda is one of our own, a member of the Western Trust family, and we are very proud of all she has achieved as she comes to the end of her term as Mayor.

“During her year in office Brenda has supported so many health and social care events and has not refused any invitation from the Trust.

“On top of this Brenda invited our Staff Recognition Award winners and those highly commended to a reception in the Guildhall in January. This was greatly appreciated by all our winners who themselves had gone the extra mile in providing high quality care.

“To thank Brenda for everything she has done for and with the Trust this year I am delighted to present her with an honorary staff recognition award and the unique ‘Because we care’ badge. We commend Brenda for serving our community with such distinction.”
