Nominated by Asiah Samuels-Baxter who wrote the following:
Harvel Mattison has worked with the Citizens Advice Bureau Service as a Manager for almost 30 years working with people from all walks of life, which is an ideal job for him, a real people’s person who is selfless, kind, giving and thoughtful, an individual anyone can rely on through thick and thin, always thinking outside the box on how to benefit the community.
Not only does he hold down a full time job, he finds time to volunteer his time, he’s fostered children, taken in Overseas students, runs a local karaoke event (targeting the over 50s whom otherwise maybe suffering loneliness or isolation) where he takes on younger (Youth boys and girls) who may be interested in a career in music (or a hobby) teaching them the ropes of his trade and allowing them to run an event night.
He has actually taught my daughters who wanted to learn just to impress their peers 😄 As if this is not enough, he also does a weekly slot on a Radio station, playing music, and giving advice on various subjects. He is an amazing human being, a perfect role model who deserves recognition.
