Age Concern, Estepona and Manilva, has suffered a great loss as Eileen Dry passed away last week following a progressive illness over recent years. Eileen devoted a large part of her life to helping older people in the communities where she lived.
In Spain she originally worked for the charity Concordia and became involved in 2003 with the setting up Age Concern, Estepona and Manilva. Eileen became President following Barry Hands who retired through ill health in 2006. She then became President of Age Concern España and guided local Age Concerns in the work they were responsible for including organisational activities.
Eileen dealt with many Age Concern clients over the years giving them advice, information and hope in a caring and sympathetic way. So many people are grateful to her for her ability to help when needed.
Eileen will be missed by Age Concern and her family. Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication Eileen. Rest in Peace.
