Cerebral Palsy Sport employee Ann Bell has reached a milestone 15 years of working for the charity.
Ann will be well known to many of our participants, volunteers and fundraisers after 15 years in post as Office Administrator.
On being awarded a 15 Years Long Service Award by Cerebral Palsy Sport Interim Chair Peter Savage, in the presence of the Board of Trustees, CEO Ali Talbot and all of the staff members, Ann said,
“The ‘bleeps’ got me again! Was my initial reaction to finding out Cerebral Palsy Sport planned to give me this award, rapidly followed by embarrassment and pleasure at the beautiful flowers and delicious cakes that came with it”.
My years at Cerebral Palsy Sport have been mostly good times, full of laughter and great friendships, as well as opportunities I would never have had elsewhere.”
Ann joined Cerebral Palsy Sport part time in February 2004 to provide a little bit of administrative support for the newly appointed Junior Development Officers as the charity really began to grow. And was soon a permanent member of staff.
As well as her Administrator role, Ann can often be seen at events, processing results and supporting the Sport Development Officers, or at our Fundraising Golf days, getting everyone involved in ‘Beat the Pro’. In 2015, Ann played an integral part in the smooth running of the CPISRA World Games in Nottingham, managing accreditation and the Games Village.
Cerebral Palsy Sport CEO Ali Talbot said,
“Cerebral Palsy Sport is delighted to be able to recognise the contribution that Ann has made to the charity during her years of service with this 15 years long service award. Ann is a very valued member of the team and it was so nice for us all as a team and Board to be able to surprise her today with this award.”
