Sandra Hullis – Team Manager, 7a Short Break Unit Stowmarket
We were delighted that Sandra Hullis from 7a - our Stowmarket Short Break Unit - won the Leadership Award at the Leading Lives AGM and Awards Night in September.

Sandra has time for everyone; no matter how busy she is, her door is always open! Sandra is the “go to” person and is always on hand to listen and help. She will always step in at the last minute and is the role model others aspire to. Sandra is active in fund raising and supporting the Friends of 7a group, she is respected by her colleagues, family carers and customer alike. Sandra is positive when times are difficult and lifts the spirit of others through her actions and good humour. If you cut Sandra in half she has Leading Lives running through her!

Congratulations Sandra - well deserved!
