Lauren Hebden – Assistant Missioner 

I joined Darlington Town Mission in 2023 as the Assistant Missioner and I’ve loved every minute since. My duties vary from home visits, driving on our monthly outings, taking “Friends” to medical appointments, shopping trips and lots more.  

I particularly enjoy the home visits to our lovely ‘Friends’, being welcomed into their own homes is a privilege. Hearing all about their life stories is so interesting. I especially love to hear about how much our ‘Friends’ all enjoy the monthly outings. We go to a fabulous variety of places and the outings always include a good cup of tea and a cake!  

I have a first-class degree in Business Management specialising in Human Resource Management. I am also a trained leader and volunteer at a weekly local Girls Brigade group. 

I feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing charity which is helping make such a difference in our local elderly community.
