Over the last few months Michelle has implemented her vision for the future of MacIntyre’s activities in Chesterfield, developing positive and firm links with many community organisations. Her idea to hold a Community Roast every month has been exceptionally received with increasing numbers of people attending.  

‘Community Roast’ provides a home cooked meal, fun, friendship and entertainment for all who attend. The Community Roast is run by local staff on a voluntary basis, with donations from local stores and organisations. The event is free to attend with optional donations, making it open to all.

The first Christmas Day Community Roast is a sell-out and was featured in the local paper.

Inspirational Leader

Michelle was able to inspire her team to switch to that new way of working which benefits people who draw on our support by making them one of the centres of community life.

This is what Michelle’s colleagues wrote in their nominations:

“Michelle is a force to be reckoned with! She has true vision and determination to achieve the best for and with the people she supports and her staff team. In a couple of months she has transformed the hub into a vibrant, connected place with different opportunities for people to try new things and be part of something amazing.”

“Michelle is an inspiration, never expecting anyone to do anything that she would not do first. She continues to amaze me with her energy, enthusiasm and sheer determination to support people to be part of and to contribute to their community. Michelle is a great example of what it means to go that extra mile. There are so many things in the pipeline as a direct results of Michelle’s dynamic, can-do attitude”
