Angie O’Carroll (Buddy Scheme Manager)

Remembering the past, helping with the future

I have become involved with this wonderful charity from my association in the Veteran community which came about when a very close friend of mine suffered an major Stroke in 2013 and I became the link between him and his Service Friends and his military contacts.
I now have many contacts now in this arena. I was looking after my friend until 2016 when he passed away.
I was made redundant from my role at Lloyds Bank in April 2017 after 37 plus years having worked my way through the ranks to senior Project Manager. I have worked in the branch network and had logistical and operational experience. So found myself with time on my hands and offered my assistance to this Charity.
I have a son of 27 who is following in his mums footsteps within Banking. A husband who makes metal shop fitting. 2 cats, Kevin the kitten and Casey the Cat. My sport love is Tenpin bowling although due to injury i haven’t managed to play much recently.
