Great news - we’ve been nominated for an award by Communities First, for Excellence in Volunteer Management. Tom Watkins from Communities First wrote to us to say why:
‘Having worked so closely with you to achieve your Six-Point Promise accreditation, a commitment to the highest standards of practise in Volunteer Management I know how much effort you put into caring for your volunteers and just to receive this nomination is a massive recognition of that. Well done!’
The credit for this has to go to Leona Fensome, who worked with Tom to put the Six-Point Promise in place - and I hope that we continue to build on this great legacy.
Volunteer Meeting - 8 September - thanks to all of those who attended, and to those who presented. October meeting will be a daytime meeting - to accommodate those who cannot join in the evenings. If you have a shout out to thank someone, or a topic you would like covered - let me know.
Thanks and have a good weekend.
(ps notice - no smiley faces after last weeks comms, where they seemed to dominate the text ... )
