­Volunteer Celebration Event 2014

Posted by Mark Buckley on Wed 09/07/14. Listed in Disability Equality NW news

30th Anniversary Volunteer's Week

As part of the 30th anniversary of Volunteers’ Week, DENW volunteers were invited to a thank you event to celebrate their valuable contribution to the organisation. The event started with a presentation of certificates to each volunteer by our Chief Executive Melanie, who said,

“We are grateful for the help of all our volunteers who work tirelessly to support all our services throughout the year.”

The rest of the morning continued with a fun quiz, raffle and refreshments. It was also a great opportunity for the volunteers to get together and get to know each other more. Overall, it was a happy and enjoyable event.
