Sandra Lindley RGN

Born and educated in Mexborough South Yorkshire. Between 1973 and 1976 she trained as a registered Nurse at the Royal Infirmary Sheffield and did work for twenty years as a qualified nurse in the National Health Service until 1996 when she accepted a post as Senior Sister in a private nursing home until recently when she was promoted to Assistant Matron. Further training has seen her become an NVQ Assessor in caring for the elderly.

She became involved initially to help raise funds for a Vagus Nerve Stimulator for Gareth Howard whom she has known since birth. When it was decided that there was a real need to go on to help others in a similar situation to Gareth, she was only too pleased to become one of the founder members of the charity when it was launched in May 1995.

When a name for the charity was sought, she was responsible for the name
(For A Better Life with Epilepsy)
it’s full name standing for everything the charity stood for.
