My name is Jackie Holden, and I am from St Ives in Cornwall. I went to school in St Ives, and as far as I am concerned it's one of the beautifluest places in the world scencally. My great granddad and his parents were Cornish, and they moved up country to get work. Great granddad married a Lancashire lass, Maggie Spencer. In 1959 the family moved back to Cornwall. Cornwall is where my heart is. I have a son and daughter, who are back living at home with me; which is great, because I love their company.
I am a former nurse. As a result of a back injury, I had to change my career. The last few years I have involved myself in Reminiscence work, and I find this work very rewarding.
I am currently unemployed, and so I involve myself in community work, and I like helping people; especially disabled, sick and unemployed people like myself.
