This week we were delighted to discover that one of our trustees, Bob Fisher, has been shortlisted for the Trustee of the Year award at this year’s ‘Voscurs’.
The Social Impact awards are run by Voscur, a charity that provides direct support services and specialist advice to voluntary organisations and social enterprises across Bristol.
Bob is a Knowle West resident who has devoted much of his life to supporting disability sport and volunteering as an official at the Paralympics. He is involved with many organisations across the Knowle West and he became a trustee of Knowle West Media Centre in 2012. He has been an invaluable asset to us ever since!
As well as his advisory work as a trustee and his support in regularly promoting our work, Bob is actively involved in delivering projects here. He is a member of the advisory group for SPHERE, which meets to inform the planning of the health and technology project, in partnership with University of Bristol.
A former lightweight boxer, Bob also helped to coordinate the meetings of the Sporting Memories network, which took place every week over several years at KWMC. He invited his contacts to come along and attended each week, picking people up on the way!
