John received numerous heartfelt nominations for his consistent support and selflessness. Always ready to assist anyone in need, he helps out with offering rides, moving furniture, and organising the weekly bingo with a smile.

John is a pillar of support, making everyone feel welcome and cared for at Kingfisher Court.
Angel attended a Tall Ships young persons’ voyage with Ken Stimpson Community School and was very committed from the first day. Throughout the week, she fearlessly embraced new challenges, engaged in every task, and generously supported and motivated others with a smile on her face. Angel’s positivity created an uplifting environment for others, making her a great member of the crew.
Hollie, previously a Kickstart pre-apprentice with our Communities team, faced challenges finding employment at the end of her placement, which left her feeling unmotivated. Hollie decided to proactively change her circumstances and took charge of the situation by a volunteer at the Westwood Hub twice a week. Hollie has also started a course that will help her reach her goal to work in probation. Her commitment and proactive approach are paving the way for a bright future.
Jamie’s commitment to West Raven Community Garden as a volunteer has been outstanding. He applies himself to gardening with a strong work ethic, dependability, and a sharp focus on safety.
