It was International Volunteer Day on December 5th and we would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to all our incredible volunteers. Without you many of our activities, services and projects wouldn’t be able to run. Things that our residents rely on and look forward to such as Neighbours Connect Southmead, Greenway Community Corner and Greenway Strollers.
The COVID lock downs, although bleak, showed us how much people care, with folks checking in with long lost friends over Zoom, sending care packages and doing their neighbours shopping. It was lovely to see.
Since the pandemic we’ve been supporting groups to rebuild and want to keep activities running that residents want to see at the Greenway Centre and The Ranch. But we can’t do it without you. Life is incredibly busy but if you find you have an afternoon or morning spare and are interested in volunteering then please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. We have a variety of activities you could be involved in with different levels of commitment, some out and about and some here at the Greenway Centre.
Volunteering opens many doors – you could learn a new skill, make new friends, build your confidence or improve your fitness! Giving back and connecting with people improves mental health and wellbeing for all involved and it can be great fun.
I’d love to talk to you about volunteering so please do give me a call or email, or drop in for a cuppa and a chat. And for volunteers currently working with us, have a great day celebrating how awesome you are! We appreciate you so much.
