We’re on a journey which seeks to see more folk experience the benefits of volunteering. The principal one being to feel good about oneself!  So this year well over 100,000 thank you cards have been sent out. The difference this time, is that these are mainly from people who have directly benefitted from a volunteers and want to say a personal thank you.  A move away from “unsung hero” to showing a little appreciation for those all around us who are giving some time to our communities.

The world is moving fast as a place where you learn from the extraordinary things that happens everyday. Our volunteers are like that. Every day people who have an extraordinary and positive effect on us. Thank you.
