There was a bittersweet moment at the last Immigration Advice drop-in. On one hand, we were overjoyed that volunteer Meg Wilde had been accepted into her dream job as an Immigration Paralegal at a great office, a job that her immense talents absolutely warrant. On the other hand, we were sad that her making such great strides in her career meant she’d no longer have the time to regularly volunteer at MRSN.
Meg was only able to volunteer with MRSN for six months, but the amount of time she dedicated to supporting Manchester’s refugee and asylum seeker community was essential in so many ways. She was enthusiastic and selfless enough to help at both our Immigration Advise and Travel Document drop-ins all day on Wednesdays, for upwards of eight hours each time. Even when she progressed into full time work from university. On top of her great understanding of immigration law that will obviously take her so far in her career, it’s maybe her vibrant and amiable personality that we will miss most! Her senses of both humour and style has lit up so many otherwise stressful drop-ins.
MRSN is sad to see her go, but we wish her the absolute best going forward in life and we know that she will often come back to say hello.
