Information officer reaches quarter century mark with Mencap in Northern Ireland
Maureen Humphreys, Mencap in Northern Ireland’s information officer, has celebrated a landmark achievement – 25 years with the organisation.
Maureen joined Mencap in February 1988, the month that saw the first Comic Relief Red Nose Day, as a clerk/typist. Since then, she has held a variety of posts that have included Gateway secretary, information resource officer, office manager and employee forum representative.
Congratulating Maureen, Mencap in Northern Ireland’s director, Maureen Piggot (who has been with the organisation for 22 years herself) said: “Everyone at Mencap would like to congratulate Maureen on reaching such a great milestone and thank her for all her hard work and dedication to Mencap and people with a learning disability over the last quarter of a century.
“Maureen’s long service has ensured that she has become a font of all Mencap knowledge and as any staff member will tell you, if there is something you need to know, just call Maureen.”
Looking back, Maureen Humphreys said: “I actually only came to Mencap for a year. There have been lots of changes and challenges, as you would expect, but I’ve enjoyed it, 25 years has flown by!”
