This week, we said farewell to our colleague John Mitchell who retired following a distinguished career, which included the last 9 years as One In A Million’s Funding Bid Writer.
During his time with One In A Million, John wrote 1,465 funding bids, raising just short of £500,000 to support the work of our charity, who engage with predominantly disadvantaged children and young people, through Sports, the Arts and Enterprise.
Driven by his passion to help others, John went about his work with great enthusiasm and spirit, whilst always demonstrating our core values: Compassion, Honesty, Integrity and Excellence!
CEO Wayne Jacobs described John as a “man of true honour who invested into the lives of children whom he may never have met”. We would like to thank John for all his hard work and commitment during his time with us and we wish him and his wife Rose a long and happy retirement.
