KCA is a local charity with innovation at its heart

January 2018

KCA have once again suffered a huge loss with the recent death of long-standing Board Member Bob Mortimer.

Dedicating much of his life to public service, Bob was a long-standing official with the Royal British Legion. Bob was a prominent official of the legion, having served as President of the Golcar branch and Chairman of the South & West Yorkshire area. He represented the legion at many events, including conferences, meetings and parades in memory of fallen servicemen and women.

From 1986 to 1990 Bob also served as a Liberal Democrat Councillor on Kirklees Council, and again from 1991 to 1995. It was during this time that Bob became involved with Kirklees Community Association.

Among his other interests, Bob was also a governor of his local school and was involved with organisations including Citizen’s Advice and the Ministry of Defence Veteran’s advice and Pensions Committee.
