Volunteers’ Coffee Morning – 7 June 2022


As part of National Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) we hosted a coffee morning at our flag ship hostel, Penny Wade House, in Richmond to show our appreciation and thank our volunteers for all their support.

Last year, around 120 active volunteers donated over 3800 hours of their time. After two years of virtual events due to the pandemic, it was great to be able to meet in person and see so many smiling faces. Our Chief Executive, Tim Fallon, joined the celebration and thanked our volunteers for their valued contributions:

“All that you do is really helpful to us as an organisation and particularly they really benefit the clients that we work with. A lot of the work we do, a lot of the success we have, we couldn’t achieve without what you do. So thank you!”
