Annual Celebration of Volunteering January 2018 3 Feb 2018
In honour of the enormous amount of voluntary hours freely given by our members each year, we like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to them all by inviting each of them to come along with a guest to our annual party. This was attended by around 70 people and a jolly good time was had by all. A recent survey revealed that our members stay with us on average for 11 ½ years, making their individual contribution really valuable and worthwhile to us as a charity and a committed source of help to our clients.
“Volunteers are not paid, not because they are worthless but because they are priceless”
What helped make the evening extra special was the presentation to us of a cheque for £1,207 by “Three Crafty Ladies” who had been selling their beautifully crafted articles throughout 2017 raising this magnificent sum. Thank you so much to our very good friends Jean, Lena and Margot for this brilliant effort on our behalf.
