Aaron Mckenna for MMV Chair

Hi, I am Aaron McKenna.

I have been a member of Mencap Liverpool and Sefton for 3 years I have done a lot of things over this time.

I came to Mencap because I am passionate about our equal rights for people with a learning disability and I wanted to be a part of an excellent team and I knew that Mencap was made for me.

While I have been at Mencap in my first year alone, I got involved in lots of fundraising:

  • Did the Liverpool Santa Dash and bucket collections – raising lots of money
  • Delivered a media course to our members that I had designed and written
  • I’ve also
  • 5k for 5 days
  • John Smiths 5k in Sefton Park
  • Zip Wire over Goodison Park
  • I have trained as a Boccia England Coach and deliver Boccia to our members
  • We are in a Boccia League
  • I am on the Mencap Liverpool and Sefton Football team ( which won our first cup in our first tournament!)
  • I take part in all of the regular sessions – Gents, Drop In etc
  • I have represented Mencap in Parliament
  • I have spoken on Radio Merseyside and Radio City promoting Mencap
  • I have worked with National Mencap to promote lots of different initiatives – my favourite was The Round the World Challenge
  • I do lots outside of Mencap too – I love football and I play for Everton In the Community – and was awarded Managers Player of the Year 2020,
  • I played for Liverpool Foundation and represented us in Germany
  • I have great connections with local musicians who helped me do my Lockdown Live Event.

My skills are:

  • Great communication skills
  • Friendly and welcoming to everyone
  • Hard working
  • Dedicated
  • Good time keeping
  • Organised
  • Social media skills
  • Web search
  • Computer skills

Please can you vote for me because I will excel in this role of being Chair, also I will make Mencap the best disability charity there is. Plus i will speak up for our members and new members and listen to you and work together to make our Mencap the best Mencap ever.
