Volunteers Week 2018 At The Disabilities Trust
Volunteers at The Disabilities Trust were thanked for their contribution in a number of ways during Volunteers’ Week, which ran from the 1st-7th June. The Disabilities Trust is a leading national charity providing specialist community-based and residential support for adults with acquired brain injury, complex physical or learning disabilities and for people with autism, including education.
Hayley Wicker-Bradbury, the Fundraising Manager commented, “Volunteers are central to the work of countless charities and other organisations. They are a valuable presence in many communities, making a difference in places as diverse as sports clubs, libraries, schools and hospitals. We would like to thank all the volunteers who help at The Disabilities Trust. They are an integral part of the way we work and help in a range of tasks from admin, gardening and DIY, to supporting service users.”
Irene Sobowale, the Chief Executive added, “I would like to recognise and thank all of the fantastic volunteers at The Disabilities Trust, who give of their time and energy so generously. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, we are able to improve the lives of the men, women and children in our care.”
Hundreds of events will be took place across the country to mark Volunteers’ Week. The annual campaign, which was established in 1984, recognises the contribution volunteers make to our communities every day.
