Vol­un­teer chief steps down

The Arran Banner - - News -

Jim Ni­chols, the lead­ing light of the Ar­ran Com­mu­nity and Vol­un­tary Ser­vices (ACVS) has re­tired.

Jim has been an as­set to the Lam­lash based ACVS for more 10 years. He served as trea­surer be­fore join­ing the staff in 2005. As chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer he has guided the or­gan­i­sa­tion through many changes and helped en­sure that ACVS is a re­spected and trusted or­gan­i­sa­tion through­out Ayr­shire.

Op­er­a­tions man­ager Vicki Yuill said: ‘His work ethic has been in­cred­i­ble, putting his all into ev­ery­thing he has done.

‘His con­tri­bu­tion can­not be summed up in a few words, it will not be for­got­ten and we are so pleased that he has cho­sen to join the board. We would like to say a big thank you, from the ACVS staff, board of di­rec­tors and from the in­di­vid­u­als and groups on Ar­ran who have ben­e­fited from his knowl­edge.’

Jim will re­main on the is­land close to fam­ily and friends. How­ever, he will shortly be head­ing off on a cruise and hope­fully many more hol­i­days with his wife Kate.
