This week marks a decade of service by the charity’s team leader and she was thanked by staff and trustees at a surprise anniversary celebration. Karen was applauded for her landmark achievement and presented with gift vouchers and flowers to recognise her years of service.

Past and present colleagues attended the event including former trustee Teresa Curteis and former project officer Katie McDaniel. Martin Vye, chairman of the Board of Trustees, praised Karen for her hard work and professionalism enabling the charity to thrive and expand over the years of her involvement with the organisation.

Simon Dolby, chief executive, said: “I am so grateful to Karen for helping me to lead the team over the years. Her organisation and networking skills have helped bring us to the point where we are ready to dramatically expand the territory we serve and make an even great impact within schools and to the vulnerable.”
