Albert Neale is Coventry’s latest Good Citizen after he was presented with an Award by the Lord Mayor today.
Throughout the years, Albert has particularly helped young people by helping them achieve their goals and be independent by volunteering for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and also fundraising for Walsgrave Church of England Primary School, where he served as a Governor. Albert has also been the driving force for establishing the latest Foodbank distribution point at Walsgrave Baptist Church and an active member and collector for other outlets, collecting clothing and other items and delivering them to Coventry charities.
Together with these charitable works, Albert also found time to become a Coventry Ambassador spending time at the 2012 Olympics and the Jimmy Hill Commemorative Service.
Part of the citation which explains why Albert was presented with the Award states: “Through his voluntary work he has shown tremendous commitment to the people of Coventry, his actions justly reflect his character and he is well deserved of this Good Citizen Award.”
