Celebration of Volunteering

This year’s Volunteer’s Week celebration have been slightly different to the normal afternoon tea but lots of nominations were forthcoming.

Just over 90 people were nominated from a wide variety of good causes and it has been fantastic to read what groups have said about their nominees.

Some of the feedback has been:

‘we are so proud to have had him volunteering’

 ‘Her responses go above and beyond and we thank her for her drive and tenacity.’ 

‘truly has been amazing and an absolute inspiration to us all. ‘

 ‘an amazing volunteer ‘

 ‘Can’t thank them enough for what they have put in place for the community of Basingstoke. ‘

 ‘a real asset to the organisation ‘

 ‘an amazing volunteer who helps create wonderful  flyers for the organisation ‘

 ‘We are lucky to have people in Basingstoke who volunteer their services for a better community. ‘

The letters and tokens of appreciation are now being delivered to households across the borough.

We would like to thank the following for their support :

The Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane, Councillor Onnalee Cubitt and her office for the letters of appreciation

Carol Bode, Gill Phipps, Chris Flemming, Margaret Macklin and Anne Watson of Rotary Club of Basingstoke Loddon for delivering the tokens of appreciation

Sarah Garland of East Woodhay and Highclere Community Signpost for delivery of the tokens of appreciation

Julie Shepherd, Tesco Chineham Community Champion for funding the tokens of appreciation and display in the store window

The organisations who nominated their volunteers

And finally, the volunteers themselves for being amazing.
