Meet the Team
Linden Raeburn - Macmillan @ West Lothian, Improving the Cancer Journey and Volunteering Manager
My name is Linden and I am the Senior Development Worker in the team. I have been in post since July 2022 and prior to that was a Welfare Rights Officer within the Advice Shop. I love working with the volunteer and ICJ teams, both the staff and volunteers are so committed to helping other people.
In my spare time I love spending time with my family, gardening and crafts.
Rosie Bunce - Macmillan @ West Lothian Information and Support and Volunteering
Hi, my name is Rosie Bunce. I have worked with the Advice Shop for 20 years within Welfare Rights and within the Macmillan @ West Lothian Cancer Information and support service since 2015. I love my job and feel privileged to work with such and great team of volunteers and colleagues. I get so much out of my role within the team, training, supporting and working alongside the volunteers as well as assisting people affected by cancer in any way I can.
In my free time, I like to socialise with my friends and family and take my wee black Scottie dog Fergus out for walks.
Maureen Colquhoun - Volunteering
Hi, my name is Maureen Colquhoun. I have worked with the council for 33 years in a few different roles. I started in 1989 as a part-time clerical assistant and during this time I trained as a volunteer with Adult Basic Education and then moved on to become an ABE tutor. I have also been involved in English as a Second Language and Adult Learning. I am now a Development Worker with the Advice Shop's volunteering team. Part of my role is to recruit, train and support our volunteers in their many different roles. One of the best bits of my job is getting to meet and work alongside so many lovely people and I love being part of such an enthusiastic and friendly team.
When I'm not at work, I love to spend time with my grandchildren and also enjoy going on walks with my husband, Alan.
Sarah Chiu - Macmillan Improving the Cancer Journey
Hi my name is Sarah and I'm one of the Link Workers for Improving the Cancer Journey Service. I started in August 2021 in Edinburgh and recently moved over to the West Lothian team. I feel honoured to be part of this service, not only because we can help with signposting, but also to be able to listen to their stories. When I'm not working, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I am about to start Level 2 British Sign Language at Edinburgh College and I hope to use this to help people in the service.

When I'm not working I enjoy taking my dog for long walks, listening to music and have recently started learning Gaelic
