“Andrew is described as giving his ‘heart and soul’ to the Morley division, having dedicated more than 100 additional hours every year to mentoring fellow volunteers while excelling in his EHS duties,” Mr Smithson said.
“All those hours going above and beyond the call of duty are worthy of recognition.”
