  JUNE NELSEY
I am honoured to be a Patron of the York Carers Forum and delighted to have the opportunity of making a small contribution to show that I care.  I have been running the Best Western Monkbar Hotel in York for over ten years, and every day is an enjoyable challenge to show that I care passionately to ensure that my guests and my staff are happy and successful – our motto is “It’s the teamwork makes the dream work”.    Working together with focus and goals makes the team stronger and more professional.
Through my job I am privileged to meet many people who tirelessly work to make the world a better place for others by raising funds for good causes.    When I met the fearless pair, Irene and Kate, I came face to face with caring.  In my private life I had been a carer for many years, although I had never recognised it by that title, since I was simply looking after those who I loved dearly.    As a Patron I am happy to be a voice for carers who tirelessly give their time and energy to care, and I hope that I can help others to understand the vital role that carers contribute to ensure a better quality of life for others

He has served in a range of posts in Hartlepool, Nottingham, Skegby (near Mansfield) and as Bishop's Chaplin in the Diocese of Southwell. He was suprised and delighted to be invited to be a Parton of York Carers Forum, and even more pleased to be asked to remain a Patron when he moves to become Vicar of Beverley Minster in the autumn of 2009.
