Celebrating Volunteers’ Week – KeithPosted on 4th June 2014 by Sean de Podesta
Mini blog 1: A kind and reliable man.
Keith became an NCS volunteer in 2004. He was then in his early fifties. Over the years he helped 40 older people with their gardens. He also played a very important role in doing risk assessments when we started doing falls prevention work in 2004-05.
When his own health declined, Keith started helping in the office, where he has ensured that the paperwork for assessments and volunteer recruitment has been kept up to date – essential work given the numbers of volunteers and scheme members we have. But he has continued to visit scheme members (without gardening), lending a helping hand to, and keeping a watchful eye out for, some of the most isolated and vulnerable people on our books.
Thank you, Keith!
