Ultimately, on Day 5 of Volunteers’ Week, a huge thank you once again to all of our volunteers across Connex Community Support who are the lifeline of our charity: our Befrienders; our Drivers; our Group Facilitators; our Home from Hospital volunteers; our Receptionists – we couldn’t make a difference without you!
A special thank you today to all our Super Befriending-Group Volunteer Heroes and Heroines today. Although we are missing our usual lovely social groups including Book Groups, Coffee Groups, Kurling Groups, Meet & Eat, Women’s Cancer Support Group and more whilst we are practising social distancing, many of our fabulous volunteers have continued to support our groups behind the scenes.
BSbS Editors Note – So often people don’t realise that paid workers in the voluntary sector often throw in a lot of extra hours because if they don’t someone could suffer.
At the moment so many paid VCS workers have gone above and beyond in the current crisis, including all the staff at Connex who have volunteered their spare time to help the Community, and us.
In particular we’d like to thank Gill and Emma for their help when we started to roll out the Viral Kindness Initiative, espescially Emma who, with Fiona, have been at the end of a message any time we’ve needed them for help and support, and Jackie, who has signed up as one of our neighbour volunteers and is out delivering food parcels for people in hardship in her spare time.
