A big thank you

Article information Published on: June 7, 2011 Updated on: November 8, 2012 Prepared by: Suzanne Newman

On 3 June Worthing Homes held a volunteers thank you event at St Paul’s community centre.

The event was held to coincide with volunteers’ week which is an annual event to celebrate the fantastic contribution that millions of volunteers make a cross the UK.

The event gave Worthing Homes a chance to thank all of the volunteers that help at the Community House, on community projects such as Cortis Avenue Wildlife Garden, as well as those that attend Worthing Homes meetings, or carry out mystery shopping and tenant research.

There was food and refreshments, a chance to win a luxury hamper, network with each other and chat with Worthing Homes staff.

One resident said: “I really enjoy volunteering, it is very rewarding. I have made new friends and gained more confidence. I only wish that other residents would get more involved in the community.”

The event also promoted the work and projects that Worthing Homes run and help to support, for example RedAssure, the Community House, Cortis avenue wildlife garden and Parklife community action group.
