Chief Executive Sheena Glass honoured in Queen’s Birthday Honours List

SOPS were delighted to hear that The Chief Executive of Glasgow Old People’s Welfare Association has been mentioned in Her Majesty’s Birthday Honours List.  Sheena Glass, who has worked tirelessly for many years with the Association is to become a MBE. GOPWA recently celebrated 65 years of service to the elderly in Glasgow.  From Day Centres to Weekly Clubs and outings, to assisting with form filling and benefit assessment it provides invaluable support to the older people of Glasgow. SOPS has had the pleasure of working with GOPWA at some of their weekly clubs.  Terry Ann O’Donnell, Professional Relationship Manager commented “The work Sheena and her team do is priceless.  They provide amongst other things much needed access to a social life and network that many older people would otherwise go without. Isolation in the elderly is a real concern and the GOPWA team deserve recognition for their extensive work across the city”. Terry Ann and Margaret McMillan from Wallace Quinn, a SOPS member firm, popped along in person earlier this week to congratulate Sheena on this huge, well deserved accolade.   Left to right:- Samantha Brand (Caesar & Howie), Margaret McMillan (Wallace Quinn), Sheena Glass MBE  (GOPWA) and Terry Ann O’Donnell (SOPS).
