It’s with great sadness that we said goodbye this week to our shop manager and education officer, Gemma Elliott. Gemma joined us almost exactly 3 years ago when Rainbow Turtle was going through a period of transition. The business was struggling financially and we had lost a number of key personnel over a short space of time (to lose one is a misfortune, but to lose two is carelessness?!!!). Gemma helped us to steady the ship, kept the shop running and maintained our work in schools.
We will miss Gemma’s bright personality and enthusiasm and wish her well in her new job.
(Oh, erm by the way this was not Gemma’s leaving do, it was Lynsay’s from 2019 but it was the only photo I could find of Gemma! We hope to be able to say goodbye to Gemma properly when things open up…)
