I’ve worked in deliveries my whole career. I’ve delivered mail by van, on foot and even on a bike, and I really enjoy doing a good job and keeping our customers happy. Royal Mail has certainly looked after me along the way, given me a lot of stability and enabled me to make the most of my organisational skills.

As well as nights out, football matches and the like for colleagues at work, I’ve organised initiatives to raise money for charity – I arranged a skydive for instance, and for a group of us to take part in the national Three Peaks Challenge.
For the last seven years or so I’ve also been a First Aider. I decided to volunteer after I found someone who’d collapsed at a home I was delivering to. I wanted to know exactly what to do if I was ever in that kind of situation again. You definitely feel respected by the company for your skills. And it’s a good feeling to know that if anyone – outside as well as inside Royal Mail – has an accident or a health problem, you could make a positive difference.
