Volunteers’ Thank You Lunch


Vol lunch website pic 1251We were delighted to see so many of our wonderful volunteers at our annual Thank You Lunch on Friday 28th November.  This year the lunch took place in the Crypt of St Elizabeth’s in Richmond and local firm Architect Your Home kindly made a donation which enabled us to treat our volunteers to a buffet lunch and a glass of wine.


Vol lunch website pic 1248Before we sat down for lunch, Lisa Peacock, one of our Trustees, welcomed and thanked our guests and gave out certificates with our Scheme Manager, Martina Phillips.

Thank you to everyone who came and thank you for all the tremendous work you do during the year.
