Cwrdd â’n Hymddiriedolwyr! / Meet our Trustees!
To mark Trustees’ Week 2022, we’ve been publishing a series of spotlights on some of our Trustees and the wonderful work they do at AVOW, and the experience they bring to our Board: our final Trustee spotlight for the week is the amazing Kevin Forbes!
A recent addition to our Board of Trustees, Kevin was a science teacher from 1970 – 2005: Through this time, he had many roles as Head of Biology, Head of Key Stage 4, Child Protection Officer, Individual Mentoring Development Lead (in partnership with MBNA) and Trade Union Representative.
Following his retirement from teaching, Kevin worked for the Royal British Legion in the (then newly created) post of Community Fundraiser for North Wales: In this role, he encouraged and supported volunteers, increasing total donations (which doubled over ten years). After his full retirement from paid employment, Kevin has continued to volunteer for Wrexham Poppy Appeal, while simultaneously supporting AVOW as one of our Trustees – we’re lucky to have him!
In his spare time (though we can’t imagine he has much of that to go around), Kevin enjoys touring in his caravan, tandem, and DIY.
Today is Remembrance Day, and Kevin has been hard at work supporting the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal for 2022 – please consider making a donation towards the Appeal by clicking here.
Diolch yn fawr for all your hard work for good causes and charity campaigns, Kevin!
