Sonya Donnegan is everything her older sister Lorraine isn’t – bubbly but dim, friendly but feckless, an idle – but not malicious – gossip. Her duties as school secretary can test Sonya to her limits at times, but in spite of it all, she finds the job suits her personality down to the ground. Her warmth and likeability (as well as perma-stocked ‘sweetie draw’) mean that Sonya is a much loved member of staff.
Sonya fell in love with Ndale in Series 8 (Whilst Ndale was engaged to Audrey McFall). Both Audrey & Sonya became broken-hearted by Ndale upon discovering he was working at Waterloo Road to supply for his family back in Africa.
In Series 10 Episode 13, Sonya found out she might have cancer after discovering a lump, but, to her relief, later found that the lump was benign.
