Shining the Spotlight on Keys Group Volunteers During Volunteers Week

Last week marked Volunteers Week, a time to recognise and celebrate the incredible contributions of individuals who generously give their time and effort to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Today, we want to highlight some extraordinary colleagues from Keys Group who embody the spirit of volunteerism and go above and beyond to make a difference.

First, let’s applaud Jono Roche from Highcroft House, who selflessly volunteers as an Explorer Scout Leader. By guiding and mentoring 14-18-year-olds, Jono helps shape their character and empowers them to strive for a brighter future.

Next, we have Izzy Horwood from Unity College, whose passion shines through as a Summer Club Leader at both the Lighthouse and Watling Valley. Izzy creates joyful and enriching experiences for young individuals, leaving a lasting impact on their lives.

Annelouise Warren from Peak Education is another remarkable volunteer. In addition to her role, she also serves as the Chair of Trustees at a charity preschool. Annelouise’s dedication extends to leading development plans, conducting appraisals, serving as the Complaints Lead, and providing invaluable SEN support.

Caroline Howard-Lewis from Finance and Integration at Keys Group is a shining example of leadership and empowerment. As an Assistant Leader at Girlguiding, she mentors and guides young girls, helping them develop confidence and leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

Debbie Simpson, the Centre Manager at Astbury Watersports Centre, demonstrates her commitment to community through her volunteer work as a Scout and Guider Leader. Debbie shapes the lives of young individuals through exciting scouting adventures, fostering personal growth and resilience.

Paul Taylor from Middleknuck Lodge is a true hero. As an active member of the Western Beacons Mountain Rescue team, he fearlessly provides crucial assistance in challenging terrains, saving lives and offering hope in times of distress.

Last but certainly not least, Catherine Wood from Middleknuck embodies the spirit of giving back. Catherine volunteers at a mental health charity in her hometown of Ludlow, supporting those in need. Additionally, she generously shares her culinary skills, teaching individuals with mental health needs how to cook, providing them with a valuable life skill.

To Jono, Izzy, Annelouise, Caroline, Debbie, Paul, Catherine, and all the other volunteers out there, we salute you. Your selfless acts of service and your unwavering commitment to your communities are truly inspiring. During Volunteers Week and beyond, let us celebrate and appreciate the remarkable individuals who make a positive difference in the lives of others through their acts of kindness and generosity.
