We are very grateful to Pershore Branch of TSB for awarding the Volunteer Centre their Community Pride award and donation of £150, which was presented to our Chairman, Eric Wiles, on Friday 24 November 2017.
Once again, we are very appreciative of the work you and your volunteers do.
Peter, Worcestershire ME Support Group
Thank you so much for your assistance, I do not know how I would manage without your support.
Community Car Scheme client
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.
Geena, Volunteer for 14 years
We know what fantastic work you do within the community and if this donation helps that to continue we will all be delighted.
Mary, Pershore Operatic & Dramatic Society
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 enjoy being a volunteer and of use to people. Volunteering is a lovely way to put something back into the community.
Derek (Minibus now car driver)
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!
Wick Care Farm
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.
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.
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.
