Evergreen had the pleasure of hosting a thanksgiving event for all of our volunteers (Bexley & Dartford) on Wednesday 18th May. This was our way of saying "thank you" to each and everyone of them for all of their hard work, support and dedication within our charity. Our volunteering roles vary from befriending one of our clients, helping at our Elderberries vintage tea rooms or admin support.
We celebrated with a glass of bubbly on arrival, followed by afternoon tea. Our volunteers received a bronze certificate and badge for being with us for 2 years and a silver for 5. We have gold ready for when our volunteers reach 10 years with us! Live music was playing throughout the night and we finished with a raffle.
"My heartfelt thanks to you for the wonderful evening you held for us Volunteers. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, had fun and was delighted to see you all. I was so impressed by you home bakers, the eye for detail in every aspect of the occasion.
It has been my pleasure to associate with Evergreen Care - a Charity I deeply admire for having its heart in the right place".
"I’d like to say thank you all for a lovely evening last night.
Receiving the certificate was wonderful. Winning the raffle was an extra bonus".
We are so grateful that we were able to hold this event for our volunteers. Thank you to all staff and partners for helping throughout the night. Thank you to Andy (Rogue Ginger photography) for photographing the night and very generously donating a family photoshoot for our raffle.
We would like to say a big thank you to; Co-op -Blackfen, Morrisons - Welling & Sidcup, Tesco - Welling and small Waitrose - Sidcup.
