Innovations in Volunteering: Ivor Moon

WEA East Midlands Region Annual Conference 2009
30th November

A truly inspiring moment occurred at yesterday’s East Midland’s WEA conference. After all of the seminars and workshops, addresses and networking a brief spell of quiet celebration descended.

The photograph below shows WEA volunteer Ivor Moon being presented with a set of photos reflecting his seventy years service with the WEA by Regional Secretary Mike Attwell . Yes you did read that correctly. 70 years service.

This outstanding contribution to the organisation was also recognised earlier this year in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List in the form of a MBE. Ivor Moon won his award for voluntary service to adult education and to the community in East Midlands.

To serve for seventy years is some feat and I for one take inspiration from this.
