AN APPEAL has been launched by members of Possobilities (formerly The Disability Community) to create a lasting memorial to one of its founder members Ronnie Rodden.

Ronnie, who passed away in 2014 worked tirelessly for people in her community and she became an incredibly active voluntary community worker involved at board level with the Community Planning Partnership, ng homes and ng2 but it’s disabled people in North Glasgow that she devoted most of her time too.

Now an appeal has been launched by members of Possobilities to install a memorial bench in Ronnie’s honour in their community garden. Melanie Fyfe of Possobilities said: “Ronnie was such an important person in our history and she was typical of our members who come together to make a difference for the benefit of all disabled people. She was a champion of change and we all miss her terribly so we wanted to do something to remember her.”

There is a justgiving page for anyone wishing to make a donation to the appeal:

Donations can also be made in person at the Centre at 74 Closeburn Street, Possilpark, Glasgow, G22 5ST.
