Community360 hosted a celebration thank you tea party for 23 volunteers at the Batte Lay tea rooms (Minories). The Community Development Team were delighted to see so many volunteers who support the organisation in many ways (Home from Hospital, IT support, Time Bank members, Knit and Natter group, Wednesday Elders group, Community Outreach support, C360 admin support).
“It is always a pleasure to be able say thank you to our volunteers for all the support they give us throughout the year. Some of our volunteers have been with us for many years and some are just starting their volunteering journey – each and every one of them play a vital part in the community and have very important roles to play” – Community Development Team
The event was held in the garden and we were very fortunate with the weather as the rain held off until we packed away!
Members were treated to a savoury buffet and Weston’s bakery provided some very lovely sticky creamy buns. Thanks also to Sainsburys who donated fruit, jam and cream for the scones and to Bills Restaurant who gave us a bag of goodies. The goodies were raffled and 10 lucky volunteers won a selection of chutneys, jams and sweet treats.
Lilian, a long standing Time Bank member said “thank you for all the hard work you the Community Development team put in on Saturday to enable all of us to have such an enjoyable time.”
