A thank you on International Volunteer Day

A message from Katie…

On 5th December we celebrate International Volunteer Day!  This side of 2021 brings us to the end of another challenging year, but our volunteers have provided dedicated time and effort to keep our charity running throughout the pandemic.  Volunteers have really pulled through for the world these last years, kept communities running and enabled charities to achieve the important work that they do, all over the world.

It is important to SSW that all our Volunteers feel valued and that they enjoy the work that they do.  We certainly don’t have dull days here, and we hope that our Volunteers feel the warmth from our Members that they meet each week.  Each year we try to get together to show our Volunteers just how much we love them, and I hope that this coming year will allow us to do this more, as we have had to miss out on this for the last two years.

This has been my first year as Volunteer Coordinator at SSW, and I have been totally struck and overwhelmed at the calibre of Volunteers we have.  The team and community environment at SSW is so wonderful – SSW wouldn’t be what it is as a charity if it weren’t for you.

Thank you to all of our Volunteers… we salute you!

If you would like to volunteer with us, please get in touch.  We are on the lookout for one-to-one drivers for member appointments and would welcome you warmly to our team of volunteers.
