Joanna Neal




I have really struggled to get my head around this loss of such an amazing women. Life is so unfair. Jo has been an absolute inspiration to me from my first ever RAW at the age of 12 and on returning as a mentor in the last few years. She was a friend, a role model, a support system and a right good laugh! As I became a teacher, I had so many questions for Jo about her job and she always had fantastic advice and stories to tell me. She was a no nonsense person and I truly admired that! She gave her time every year to support the children at RAW and as seen in the amazing tributes she was very loved and appreciated. I only hope she knew just how many lives she touched, including my own! We have had such fun times at AGMs too over the latter years and enjoyed a few drinks and laughs together. Jo is one of the main people I associate with Reach and I feel so sad for the people who will now go through the charity without experiencing how amazing she really was. I will do my best through mentoring at RAW to ensure that her work, loyalty and inspiration is never ever forgotten. My thoughts go out to her family and friends at this difficult time. RIP to our lovely Jo❤️
