Shirley Talbot

Shirley was invited to become a Trustee in 1992 shortly after Father Ronnie’’s death.  She has knowledge of the area, having worked in Lulindi and Mkomaindo Hospitals from January 1967 until  February 1969 as Sister and Matron and this knowledge has been of immense importance to the other Trustees in their decision-making.
Shirley is still very much involved with African Palms, a project, which her husband Reverend Alan Talbot had started in 1965. African Palms aims to sell Palm Crosses, which are woven in the Masasi area, throughout the world. The scheme enables people in Masasi to earn some money and any extra money made is used to support the people of Masasi
