Profile - Jen Donnelly

I have lived in Sheffield all my life, growing up in Nether Edge and attending Clifford first school, Hunters Bar and then High Storrs.  After finishing school, I worked for the glass industry science laboratory at Chapeltown before my children were born.We moved to Dore 11 years ago when my children were very small. I spent 6 years being heavily involved in Dore Primary School’s parents’ association, most of those as secretary. Now my children are at King Ecgbert’s, I’m looking for a new way of getting involved and contributing to the local community.  

I have been involved in drafting the Dore Neighbourhood Plan over the last three years and have an appreciation of how much effort and commitment it takes to be a member of the committee.  I have also been involved in the Dore Show and Dore Gala for a number of years.

I enjoy playing tennis, going to the gym and orienteering when I get the chance.

I love this area of Sheffield and its village feel and am keen to help take it forward into the future.
