THE memory of a Warrington woman who gave up a promising career to help others is set to live on after her life was tragically cut short.
The Relationships Centre in Museum Street recently lost one of their key members of staff, Lucy McGuire (Hindmarch).
Lucy aged 44 passed away after a short illness, leaving a husband and young son.
Typically of Lucy, she was thinking of others and donated her organs so that nine people could achieve an increased chance of an improved quality of life.
Having worked at the centre for many years, she touched the lives of many local families and individuals through both her work at the Relationships Centre and her strong association with St. Thomas’ church in Stockton Heath.
She gave up a promising career in business to retrain as a counsellor to be able to support and empower young people to achieve their dreams through engaging with them and building their life skills.
She set up many young people’s programmes and was passionate about reducing the effect of social isolation and increasing opportunities for a wide range of young people by listening, supporting and engaging with them.
A spokesperson for the relationships centre said: “Lucy’s legacy is the charity which she helped build and which has had such a tremendous impact on so many people’s lives. We will miss her physical presence but her essence lives on in the daily work of the charity.
“Her family have asked that rather than flowers, please would anybody wishing to remember Lucy make donations to the charity either directly to the centre or through a justgiving page set up for her via a text message. Simply text TLSA19 along with an amount of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070
