Volunteer Week celebrations

It doesn’t seem like it has been almost a since Volunteers Week was in full swing! June has been a busy month but we made sure we took the time to celebrate with our volunteers and thank them for their huge contribution to what we do.

On the Tuesday we held a volunteer lunch for our volunteers at the Heart of Scotstoun Community Centre were a great spread was put on by The Cherry Tree Cafe team.

On the Wednesday we also held a wee celebration up at the Applefield Garden at Gartnavel Royal Hospital where the Green Gym were along to lend us a hand.

We also had a special celebration as one of our long serving volunteers achieved a significant milestone just before Volunteers Week – over 800 hours volunteering with us! Absolutely amazing – thank you!

A massive thanks to all the volunteers that contribute to and support our work – it is very much appreciated! You can check out some of the photos below!
