"Just a huge thank you to the team in Pershore and the volunteer drivers who cover Eckington. R S and D P have been so helpful and patient with me over the last 9 months. It is thanks to you all that I have been able to attend my numerous appointments"
To everyone who worked and helped at last Sunday’s Christmas afternoon tea. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed myself. I spoke to people I had not seen for at least 30-40 years.
I enjoy being a volunteer and of use to people. Volunteering is a lovely way to put something back into the community.

The attached cheque is a gift from my late mother who so enjoyed the many years she was a member of the (previous) Wednesday lunch club. After my father died, it was a lifeline for her and enabled her to make many valued friends. She was so sad when her increasing immobility prevented her going there any longer and really missed it during the last year or so of her life. The recent move to St Andrews Community Centre as our new Lunch Club venue makes it possible for people with limited mobility…
It was a pleasure to meet the volunteer recruitment team to talk through suitable opportunities. Together, we narrowed it down to roles offered by five organisations and I was given the chance to visit each before making a decision. This is a super service.
I really enjoy helping others and, as I get to know clients and gain a greater perspective of their life and challenges, I also gain a greater appreciation of my own life.

Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.

My volunteer experience enabled me to practice my Microsoft Office skills and increased my confidence, which helped me to learn new skills and return to work. I appreciated being consulted on how to assist with change and enjoyed working within a very upbeat fantastic office team.
I’ve been driving for the Volunteer Centre for 16 years and absolutely love it. As a driver you meet some really good characters and nice people. I’m helping them and they are helping me as I have to be doing something with my time otherwise I get restless and stressed out at home.
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
