Margaret’s background is in Nursing and Midwifery, where she was privileged to care for people from the thrill of birth to work with Marie Curie Cancer Care for those at the end of life. After 25 years she took early retirement due to family illnesses and worked for a number of years in the voluntary sector. This included time with The National Trust, musical charities and three years sailing tall ships with people of all abilities, for The Jubilee Sailing Trust. Six years ago a new adventure began at Kendal Museum with a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Customer Service. Since then she has completed the Green Museums’ Carbon Literacy Programme and enjoyed many wonderful new opportunities and experiences. Margaret is also a very proud Grandma!
