Who Inspires You?

The Editorial Team of AFG’s staff magazine ‘Staying in Touch’ feel very honoured when inspirational stories hit the news desk for them to read first hand.

For the Winter 2012 edition it got them thinking; who, in your work or home life, inspires YOU? So they hit the corridors of Head Office ‘Lion Court’ to swap hats and ask staff to interview – who inspires you?

Tony Shaw, ICT Technician, interviewed Service User James (aka Jimmy) admiring him for his “enthusiasm and happiness when he walks in to a room.”
