DACT continues to stride ahead as we arrive in the middle of February 2018 and we continue to be excited about the year ahead. We are currently planning for our 25th Anniversary which is due to take place later this year and the new Mobility Shop extension is due to start next month with a grand opening later in the Summer.
We have also had a new addition to our team in Matt Bowman and Matt writes: “My name is Matt, I am 23 years old and I am married to my lovely wife Lauren. For the entirety of my life, I have been involved in the local Church. The most attractive part of church has always been the people – being able to encounter so many individuals.
“Until joining DACT, I have felt that this was one of the main elements of my job that I missed – being able to meet and help so many wonderful people – and I have found this at DACT. I joined in November 2017. I was excited to work at DACT because of their heart for people, and reputation in the Daventry District. Whilst my knowledge of DACT was little to begin with, the more I learned about them, the more I knew that they would be a real joy to work with, and since starting, I have discovered how fulfilling the role is. The help and assistance that all of our incredible volunteers offer is unrivalled, and working with these amazing people is one of the greatest aspects of the role.”
Matt has come on board just at the right time as his main role is to support our Car Scheme passengers getting to vital medical appointments and coordinating the volunteer drivers who take them, and January 2018 saw the biggest number of requests since March 2015!
