On Thursday 10 September family, students and staff gathered at Birtenshaw to bid a final farewell at a remembrance memorial for our dear friend and colleague Yvonne.
Yvonne was a very inspirational member of staff who provided outstanding support for children and young people throughout her time at Birtenshaw. All who knew her came together to share their love and their very fond memories of Yvonne. All who were present released purple balloons as an ode to Yvonne whose favourite colour was purple.
Yvonne’s family kindly left donations for the children’s homes that she worked in. She will forever be remembered at Birtenshaw for her amazing work and kind personality.
