Kev says:  I took early retirement in 2013 after a general management career within the aerospace industry.  Too old for football, too young for bowls and with a phobia for gardening, I turned to the voluntary sector for inspiration.

After working as a volunteer buddy with local lads under a different Somerset County Scheme, I discovered PROMISE and trained as a mentor in 2014.  I have since joined the Somerset Safeguarding Children Board as a Community Member and very much enjoy being involved in the wider aspects of nurturing our young people and helping them  to fulfil their full potential.

When not volunteering I am usually to be found following the Wolves or bopping to Northern Soul music.  As they say, you can take the lad out of Wolverhampton….
