Emma Silipo, Volunteer Co-ordinator

We are delighted to announce that we have appointed a new Volunteer Coordinator, Emma Silipo. Some of you will already know her as our Ponteland Shop Manager.
Emma has lived in Ponteland virtually all her life and does so now with her two teenage boys and her daughter. Prior to having children she spent her career in Singapore organising exhibitions and events for International Companies and the Singapore Government. She then progressed to be the General Manager of a Design and Advertising agency producing marketing materials for multi-international corporations based in South East Asia.
Since returning to Ponteland Emma has been a Volunteer, involved with organisations such as the National Childbirth Trust, the local schools’ Parent Teacher Associations and Barnardos.
Her volunteering involvement with Tynedale Hospice at Home began in the Ponteland Shop when it opened in June 2014 where she volunteered on a regular basis. Since May 2015 she has been the Ponteland Shop Manager working with the Volunteers based there and now looks forward to working with all the Volunteers in her new role a Volunteer Coordinator
In her spare time she likes to horse ride, visit the theatre and spend days out with her children.
Based in Hexham, Emma will be working five days a week. Her telephone details will be advised once she starts but, in the meantime her email address remains the same emmasilipo@tynedalehospice.com.
Knowing the Hospice, Emma will soon be able to get to grips with her new position and I know that you will extend a warm welcome to Emma as Volunteer Coordinator. I feel sure she will, in her new role, quickly become a valuable and integral member of our team.
