Roy Kane - January winner

Roy is a member of staff at Howes Community Primary School. He is well respected not only there but also in his local community.

He carries out many tasks on a voluntary basis which are way beyond his general responsibilities. His hallmark is the cheerful way in which he constantly helps others.

He voluntarily drives for the Enterprise Club, taking disabled people to their community centre. He also organises fundraising events for a variety of charities. He is held in the highest esteem by the youngsters, who remember his cheerful disposition and hard work at school events, and by the older generation who he helps by carrying out repairs and helping with their problems.

Every sector of the school community - pupils, parents, staff and outside agencies - value Roy's contribution and consider him to be 'one in a million'.
