Congratulations to Ken Chadwick for receiving a long service award at our AGM. Ken has been a volunteer driver in Ryedale for 20 years – ten years as part of Ryedale Community Transport and prior to that he drove for our predecessor as part of Ryedale Voluntary Action.
Ken is also a member of our Trustees’ Committee and his role on the board is to reflect the views and experiences of our most valuable asset – our volunteer drivers.
Whilst Ken doubts that he’ll still be with Ryedale Community Transport in another 20 years’ time he does hope to continue driving for us for a good few more years yet! The meeting of new people, the fascinating stories they often have to tell and the feeling of really helping people are all part of the work which Ken enjoys.
Without volunteer drivers like Ken we wouldn’t be able to do the vital work in the community that we do. If you think you would be able to spare even as little as one day a week to help us then why not take a quick look at the volunteering section?
