Treloar’s honours it volunteers at its annual Volunteer Thank you Lunch
July 11, 2019 / 12:22 pm
Treloar’s held its annual Volunteers Thank You Lunch in early July where staff and volunteers joined together to celebrate another successful year of volunteering at Treloar’s. We said a sad goodbye to our 10 international volunteers who have been living on site and volunteering full-time since September as part of a gap year. They have joined us from countries as far afield as South Korea, Taiwan, Finland and Ecuador, and have enriched Treloar’s and our students with their experiences and enthusiasm.
Certificates were also presented by Principal Martin Ingram to the nominees for the Voluntary Helper of the Year award. Jane Macnabb was named as the worthy winner of the award for 2018-19, and was delighted to accept on behalf of the Friends of Treloar’s group which she has chaired for a number of years. The Friends contribute an incredible amount, including organising the annual Plant Sale and manning stands for our charity Christmas card sales and at the annual Dummer Fair. Jane also gives her time once a week to volunteer with students developing their reading skills.
If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering, either as part of the Friends group or with our student activities and classrooms, please contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator, Laura Gilbert on firstname.lastname@example.org.
