The volunteer recruitment process exceeded my expectations and they found me a brilliant place to volunteer.
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.
As a community organisation, we value the amazing range of skills offered by volunteers recruited through the Volunteer Centre’s bespoke service. Together they promote our ethos, support the wellbeing of our clients and muck-in at events!
At the initial interview, the Volunteer Centre adviser was great, providing information about all the possible opportunities she thought would match my interests. My details were passed to my chosen organisation and, although I was advised that it might take a few days before they would call me, the referral process exceeded my expectations as the manager called me almost the same day and we got a date arranged to meet up right away. I am delighted with my new volunteering role.

We know what fantastic work you do within the community and if this donation helps that to continue we will all be delighted.
Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.
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.
Thanks for the sterling work your driver did at our Open Gardens Day yesterday. Brilliant service
While I have not used your service frequently, I think it is invaluable and really appreciate it when needed.
