Westway CT nominates long-standing Volunteer John Walker for The Mayor’s Award
John Walker started volunteering with Westway CT way back in July 2004 for the Volunteer Cars (previously known as the Community Car Scheme). John also donated his free time as a Trustee and was an active member of the Westway Community Transport Management Committee and Sub-Committees for many years. Westway CT nominated John for the Mayor’s Award for his dedication to the role.
Feedback received from members about John indicated that John always had a positive attitude and they have always found him helpful, polite, conscientious and caring. Always making regular time to support the Volunteer Cars and donates not only his time but the use of his car. “John has a real desire to help people in need and contributes to providing this essential service to residents of RBKC, who find it difficult to use public transport”, said Andrew Kelly, Director between 2002 – 2019.
John specialises in helping people that need to travel long distances and without his contribution to the Volunteer Cars people would not be able to travel outside the local area. John would think nothing of taking someone to the coast for a holiday and returning a week later to bring them home.
His contributions to the Westway CT Management Committee and the Volunteer Cars have been amazing and he has helped hundreds of people over the nine years he volunteered. Westway CT believes that his qualities should be rewarded.
