There were host of nominations but it was Dave who was crowned our employee of the year, winning x2 tickets to any West Bromwich Albion FC game of his choice as well as a stadium tour at the Hawthorns.

Dave was chosen as the winner by his fellow members of staff at the charity after winning employee of the month in May 2016 for always striving for better and motivating his team.

He also impressed with his implementation of the Sandwell Lunch Club Programme alongside continually managing the Community Wellbeing Service.

Dave was delighted to have been named Employee of the Year 2015/16.

He said: “I feel really overwhelmed about being voted so thank you so much to all the people who nominated me!

“I don’t come to work to win awards like this, so the fact I have is just really amazing and kind of shows me I’m doing something to make a difference to the people who access our organisation.”

Our Chief Executive, Monica Shafaq presented Dave with the award and believes he is a deserving winner.

She said: “Everybody at the charity has worked extremely hard this year especially Dave who has balanced his duties overseeing the day to day operations of the Community Wellbeing team whilst spear-heading the Sandwell Lunch Clubs.

“On behalf of The Kaleidoscope Plus Group, I would like to say a massive thanks to Dave Pickard for all his positive contributions in the last 12 months and thank you to our official charity partners West Bromwich Albion for providing the home tickets and stadium tour prize.”
