Paul Monk, Founder of The MonkeyBusiness Foundation and WorKingOptions in Education has written a few words to commemorate Bob Willis and what his support has meant.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our Chairman of Trustees, Bob Willis MBE. Bob was so much more than our Chairman as he was also instrumental in the creation of the WorKingOptions in Education Charity itself, came up with the idea for our annual charity fundraising event, The Leadership Symposium, and was ever-present on The Leadership Weekend that raised over £2m for the GroceryAid Charity. Bob was an inspirational friend to us all, cared deeply about our charity work, full of innovative ideas and such great fun to work with. We will miss him terribly but aim to continue our important charity work with his inspiration guiding us.
Our thoughts are with Bob’s family and friends at this time.
