The Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all of the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. The referral process exceeded my expectations. I have taken on different roles and am still volunteering there. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now
Dear Donna, I’m writing on behalf of the Bishampton Gardening Club to say a big thank you for hiring us the bus for our Open Gardens last Sunday. It makes a huge difference to have some transport and all the visitors who used it were very appreciative.
I was delighted to meet Annie your volunteer driver and we are very grateful to her for giving up a large part of the Sunday to drive the bus. Everyone I spoke to said she was so helpful and reliable. We were delighted with the number of people who visited the gardens on a very hot day! Although we don’t have all the final figures in yet we should be able to make generous donations to our charities. Once again many thanks for your help and we look forward to receiving your bill in due course.
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 to attend.
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.
Thanks for the sterling work your driver did at our Open Gardens Day yesterday. Brilliant service
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.
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.
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
