Inspire Awards - November To December 2014

Yvonne Way, Alabaré's Property Manager, received an Inspire Award in November.

"Yvonne I feel has gone above and beyond her role over this past year in managing a challenging workload along with a complex and increasing property portfolio....  Yvonne is a caring and compassionate colleague who will always go the extra mile for Alabare.  I feel it is time Yvonne's hard work and dedication is recognised."

"The Soundwave music project has been running at The Junction for just over a year now and has proven a huge success for the team, The Junction and Alabaré as a whole.

Helping with the Oxjam preparations. Marcus has been volunteering with us and has recently started to cover leave. He is always enthusiastic about the work he carries out but especially the music.  This team of staff & volunteers have enthusiasm, joy and dedication to keep the project moving and developing."
