Ray pictured above during the roundhouse restoration, will be well known to everybody associated with Erlas, having volunteered for over 11 years and been working with us 3 days a week for so long now that most people assume he is a full time, member of staff. As Ray put it “I have been here a long time and seen a lot of changes, but I am still enjoying it every day”.
His contribution to Erlas over the last 11 years has been immense and varied. Below are a few pictures of Ray in action.
Congratulations to Ray on his nomination and thanks from everybody associated with Erlas for all his work for the charity. Thanks Ray.
