On the 10th November 2018 we held our first annual Volunteer Celebration. The board and the staff team felt it was important to set aside some time to celebrate and spoil our volunteers, and try to show them how valued they are within our service.
We are very lucky to have a team of dedicated volunteer mum befrienders, and volunteer doulas - without whom who couldn't run our service!
The theme of the celebration was Relax & Unwind, and we had a lovely morning drinking cuppas, eating cakes and catching up. Rosie led a lovely relaxation session, and we made our own Lip Scrubs and Essential Oil rollerballs. We were also lucky enough to have Julie from JD Beauty come along and treat us to complimentary hand massages!
It was also a time to celebrate the successes of our volunteers and presentations of certificates for completing out accredited training, and certificates for those who have completed a year's service with us were given out.
Some very generous companies had also donated to tour goody bags, so all of our volunteers got some little treats to take home. Please see our Sponsors page (https://www.nurturetheborders.com/our-supporters) for a full list of those who supported our event - we are so grateful!
We really can't put into words how special our volunteers are, but we hope this went a small way towards that!
