Staff and volunteers had a fantastic time on Friday 2nd December at Mayer Hall in Bebington.
This 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.
Volunteers were greeted with welcome drinks and treated to a selection of delicious sandwiches and fancy cakes. 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 volunteers 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.
We would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone involved with Home-Start Wirral a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New year.
Home-Start Wirral has been given the opportunity by the Lloyds Bank Foundation to apply for UK quality standard ‘Investing In Volunteers’, giving us the opportunity to demonstrate our continued support to volunteering.
Enhancing our volunteers’ experience and encouraging more people to volunteer with Home-Start Wirral has always been important to us, along with a necessity to raise our profile within the local community and with funders.
If we can achieve this prestigious accolade, we will not just achieve these objectives, but make further strides in ensuring our volunteers contribution is recognised, valued and supported.
