Jonathan was presented with a certificate saying he was awarded:
For his exceptional volunteering over the last 12 years even when living in Bournemouth. Jonathan has raised large sums through supermarket collections and assisted with a multitude of activities over the period.
During the session, Jonathan was the guest of honour, and discussed his volunteer story with the group.
Jonathan began his voluntary journey with us by supporting our activities at Head Office. He told the group:
I did a lot of admin, filing, spread sheets and franking to help the staff out, I dealt with post too.
In the early years, Jonathan also played on Harrow Mencap’s football team, the Harrow Stones, which he really enjoyed doing, he explained:
I scored quite a few goals, and played as a defender, but my favourite things to do were supermarket collections for fundraising, and lunch club and coffee morning events.
