Key Drivers

Honourable Purpose

We aim to be positive in everything, doing what is good and aiming to benefit others as well as ourselves.
We seek to do our personal best without bragging and to encourage others to achieve their best critical or jealous of their efforts.
We care for those who are in difficulty and who are hurting, recognising that the world does not
exist for us alone.
We can be trusted to be honest and truthful, to say what we mean and to do what we say.
We recognise that having the freedom to express ourselves means we must also accept responsibility for our words, thoughts and actions.
We aim to do what is right, whatever the cost; we stand up for the weak, whatever the danger; we face our fears and find ways of defeating them.
We know that hard work and the refusal to give up are essential if we are to achieve anything worthwhile.
