Thank you to our volunteers: #VolunteersWeek2023
It’s National Volunteers’ Week (1 – 7 June). We’re celebrating with a big, warm THANK YOU to all our amazing WGN volunteers.
They support our work with older people throughout the year – from delivering festive-cheer bags, to toasting crumpets, spending time with our members, serving lunches, and helping to shape the future of our award-winning organisation.
One of regular volunteers, Nicola (pictured back left) helps at our weekly coffee morning:
“I volunteer because it motivates me and gives me something to do. It’s nice to see everyone happy and smiling, meet new people, and do something to bring everyone together.”
We need more volunteers! In particular, we’re seeking volunteers for the following roles:
- Drivers – to support our new Volunteer Drivers Scheme (launching later this year) – connecting older residents to their local community
- Board members – with finance, HR, legal and fundraising skills – to help steer our community interest company.
