AgeConnect Champion: Annette Hodges

AgeConnect ChampionsWinner of the 2018 AgeConnect Champion ‘One Person Makes A Difference’ award is Annette Hodges, who hung up her clippers in December, (seen here in the centre).

At 80 years of age, the ex-registered nurse has, for the last 15 years, offered monthly appointments cutting toenails for arthritis sufferers. She has been committed to preserving the dignity and comfort of her clients.
