Celebrating volunteers at SOAR Community

Volunteering with SOAR is rewarding – both for the volunteers and for the wider community who benefit from your time and work. But sometimes, we like to say a big ‘thank you’ to our volunteers and let them know they’re appreciated!

We did just that recently, holding a volunteer celebration for the lovely people who give their time and energy to work with the Age Better project and Early Years project.

Some lovely cakes were washed down by afternoon tea, and we gave our volunteers a certificate and a keepsake poem which summed up our appreciation.

While there, we asked the volunteers why they do it, and we got some fabulous responses!

“I love helping people and making new friends,” said one volunteer. “It has given me more confidence and made my life a lot better and happier.”

And another said: “I really look forward to the social café, I have made some lovely friends and I have even re-found my interest in knitting and learnt some new things.”

Volunteers work for SOAR in all sorts of areas, whether it is health, employment, training or advocacy. We will help you use the skills you already have, and help you to learn new skills.
