Volunteer Celebrations!

In June we spent some quality time with some of our volunteers, we enjoyed a meal and had lots of laughter! We are so thankful to be supported by our volunteers, we couldn't do it without them.

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our volunteers.

Donna Quinn

"This lady, is 1 in a million, she turned a local telephone box into a local library, she runs a handwriting club that sends letters so cancer patients and elderly in care homes, she is the most wonderful work colleague who is always there for everyone and puts on events and fun things in the staff room at the Droitwich private hospital, an all-round lovely caring person who goes above and beyond every single day."

We celebrated #VolunteersWeek

on our social media, and posted something new everyday to discuss and celebrate how many incredible people support the charity. From driving to gardening, administration to fundraising - we are so fortunate to be supported by so many individuals. Every little helps and without them, we couldn't continue providing vital community services!

Moving Forward Partner With Blue Cross!

“Previously we have received small donations of pet food from local supermarkets, we often have families asking if we have pet food available. Over the past six months we have seen an increase in families using the community fridge, and we expect this to continue to rise due to the current cost of living crisis. We welcome any donations, and we are looking forward to our new partnership with Blue Cross Droitwich.”
