Staff and volunteers had a fantastic time on Friday 2nd December at Mayer Hall in Bebington.

img_2359rev2This years ‘Volunteer Christmas Event’ was a tremendous success, giving us a chance to thank all our volunteers for their hard work throughout the year.

Without their continued efforts and support, Home-Start Wirral would not be able to continue supporting so many families within Wirral, and having a positive influence on so many young lives.

This years celebration was a little special, Home-Start Wirral having recently achieved the prestigious accolade of the ‘Investing In Volunteers’ award.

The event gave Mayor of Wirral Cllr Pat Hackett and Mayoress Mrs Elaine Hackett an opportunity to formally present Home-Start Wirral with the award. They were also joined by speakers Julia Hassall, Director of Children’s Services and Fiona Johnson, Director of Public Health, whose attendance contributed to making the occasion one to remember.

The renovated and refurbished Mayer Hall was the perfect venue for this years celebration, the ideal setting to chat with Home-Start Wirral staff and volunteersp1080828 you may not have seen for a while. Generously donated raffle prizes also meant that volunteers went home with some lovely prizes that kept the fun and excitement of the afternoon going right to the very end.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and we hoped you enjoyed yourself.
